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.

Apparatus Rollover, Condolences, Long Island Firefighter (The Secret List)

Sunday, December 21, 2014   All,

Charlotte. (North Carolina) Ladder 32 overturned last night but thankfully, the only in jury was the driver who has a hand injury. No one else was hurt. Ladder 32 was the company that overturned and caught fire this past summer-but this was a different shift. This truck was a reserve truck they have been using. 

Initial reports are that a mechanical failure may have caused the driver to lose control while they were responding to a fire alarm activation around 0330 hours.

HERE are photos of the apparatus crash.

OUR CONDOLENCES:
While not fire related, we-as you-remain beyond shocked at the assassination of two NYPD Officers yesterday afternoon by a career murderer/criminal. Additionally, when we woke this morning, we learned that another Police Officer was gun downed and murdered in Tarpon Springs, Florida.

Our condolences to the friends and family of NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos as well as Tarpon Springs Police Officer Charles "Charlie K" Kondek. 

 

 

JUST A REMINDER..IF YOU CAN SPARE A FEW BUCKS:

THANKS for your response to TSL request-donations form all over the USA hit that site hard yesterday-which is great. As you know, Inwood (Long Island, NY) Firefighter Joe Sanford continues to fight for his life after being critically injured at that house fire in Woodmere on Friday.
Some friends set up a fundraiser to help cover the astronomical medical costs, provide for his family-etc. He is a veteran Volunteer Firefighter-he was injured as a Volunteer-not his source of income.
If you can afford it, please click below and donate to help FF Sanford and his family.
Any amount matters.

Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
