Today Firefighters gathered in St. Anna (WI) to pay final respects to Fallen FF Steven “Peanut” Koeser. As you know, a dumpster fire and explosion killed FF Koeser, 33, and injured 8 other FF’s on Dec. 29. While the facts related to his tragic death have not yet been completely determined, it’s another wake up call and reminder for any of us to use caution and full protection when operating.
And Could Happen Here.
While some think "it’s no big deal" – that is the wrong answer. It definitely is a "big deal" – and has for other FF’s. It could have been nasty as no one knows what might have blown up or what crap they are breathing. It’s 2010-we don’t have to breathe that nasty crap-no need to breathe that crap.
