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."

PA MAYDAY Update, Firehouse Fire, EMS SUV Explodes (The Secret List)

Tuesday, March 3, 2015   All,

Following this mornings multi-alarm fire in Clearfield (Clearfield County, PA) - an 18 year old Lawrence Township Firefighter has been hospitalized in UPMC Altoona after being trapped in that dwelling in Clearfield Borough.
FF Jeffrey Buck was trapped after the porch roof collapsed. He was extricated from the dwelling and two others crawled to safety. Firefighters had to cut through the collapse to rescue the FF- and he was initially in traumatic arrest. 

FF Buck obviously sustained very serious injuries in the fire/collapse and remains hospitalized- - the other Firefighters were treated locally at Clearfield Penn Highlands Hospital and they have been released.

The adult residents and their pets escaped from the home-companies arrived with fire visible. The family children were not at home at the time of the fire.

2 Captains discovered the fire at 0127 hours and it is believed to have begun in a second-floor utility room of Station 2.
The captains alerted their7 sleeping Firefighters and together, escaped the fire, moved a fire engine and truck from the station bay, and then began fighting the fire as additional crews were dispatched to the scene from other stations.
All nine members of Station 2's crew were taken to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation, but no serious injuries were reported.

Two Quincy Firefighters were hurt in an explosion at a car fire this morning.
Companies were called to the ramp from I-93 north to the Furnace Brook Parkway at 0800 after a Boston EMS SUV caught fire.

Just after arrival, the master O2 cylinder in the vehicle apparently exploded and debris flew at the Firefighters. All members are OK. We have some photos posted on our home page.
