DUMB QUESTIONS? Welcome To 2006. – Firehouse.com In The Line Of Duty:
When the final reports come out about how we died in 2005, it will look almost identical to 2004. Nuth’n new. And the changes are happening nationally but not always reaching the local level. It’s going to take a lot more work, more time and much more of a serious commitment by everyone who “crawls down halls” and we will then start seeing more changes that matter to our future. After all, just look at what the IAFF, the IAFC, the NFFF, the NVFC, the USFA and others are all doing for us, their members, to improve firefighter survival. But if it doesn’t happen on a local level, it will be a waste of time.

Without boring you, the solutions are often easy. It’s just a matter of how badly we/me/you want to reduce the numbers, starting with a serious commitment by the firefighters and officers on each piece of apparatus, in every firehouse, to have everyone go home. Duh.

From a firefighting tactical standpoint, we suffer a minority of firefighter deaths all be it some of the absolute most horrific. Want some solutions to the “firefighting” death issue. We want some questions answered that some clown you work with may call dumb. Read these two superb pieces by retired FDNY Deputy Chief Vincent Dunn. He covers most of it.
