The Secret List
 

The Secret List is an independent newsletter produced since 1998 by Chief Billy Goldfeder in an effort to bring forward the issues involving injury and death to us...often issues that are ignored, quickly forgotten or just not talked about.

TSL is e-mailed at no charge and produced as time allows. With the attitude that in order for us to survive the dangers of the job, they must learn how we have had "Close Calls" and even been injured or killed, TSL brings forward issues in an effort to enforce that philosophy-and get us to refocus on "what's important."

You may want to check that out in order to "allow" The Secret List. Due to the thousands of subscribers, we don't have the time to answer "questionnaires" sent to us by "spam" protection systems.

Firefighter LODD-Collapsed At Bldg Fire-Ohio (The Secret List)

Friday, November 28, 2014  OHIO FIREFIGHTER SUCCUMBS TO HEART ATTACK AT FIRE SCENE LAST WEEK

The Secret List www.FireFighterCloseCalls.com

We regret to advise you that Western Holmes Fire District-Lakeville Station (Lakeville, Ohio) Firefighter Tom Rhamey has died in the Line of Duty. He had been in the surgical cardiovascular ICU unit at Akron City Summa Hospital. FF Rhamey, who had 55 years of service, was transported by Western Holmes EMS to Wooster Community Hospital November 18th, following that house fire in Shreve. From Wooster, he was taken by helicopter to Akron City. FF Rhamey had been responding well to treatments and doctors had been able to reduce his medication. 

Sadly though, he passed away today.


FF Rhamey was the driver of the Lakeville tanker that responded to that house fire at 849 N. Main Street in Shreve on the 18th. A Vietnam veteran, Rhamey also served in the National Guard in its fire brigade. He was a longtime insurance salesperson and beloved veteran Firefighter.
