Rene IrickSunday, December 02, 2012 12:55:06 PMI have been seeing a lot of accident with fire equipment in the east what's up with that do they not get the same training as the west coast?
Ray HarrisSunday, December 02, 2012 12:58:35 PMReally??
Shane Wreck SeiberSunday, December 02, 2012 1:00:34 PMwe get the same training Rene, problem is some let the adrenaline and their ego's facilitate a poor use of judgement... Although not sure if it played a part here, its still under investigation, so lets not speculate.
Mark NormingtonSunday, December 02, 2012 1:40:59 PMKinda hard to explain when the truck is the only one involved.
Steve KolodziejSunday, December 02, 2012 1:51:09 PMdon't forget might not be driver error could have been tire blow out , mechical failure , some one could have run stop sign , kid ran in the street you just don't know.

Tracy ErwinSunday, December 02, 2012 2:15:44 PMit might of been a kid running out in front of them or a car running a sign,,,, but a grass fire is nothing to get in a big hurry for..not saying the driver was at fault but like shane said sometimes the adrenaline gets the best of us and that's when things can go wrong! stay safe brothers.
Stephen E SchlitzerSunday, December 02, 2012 2:40:12 PMIf we are all BROTHERS on this site then the first thing we need to do is pray for a speedy recovery of OUR BROTHERS hurt in the accident. The investigation will take place and consequences will be handed out.. Then we all may lean from this terrible accident. This isn't about East coast, West coast training. The fire service has come a long way and most if not all of the training today is almost the same for the entire country except for special circumstances. Lets say a pray for these BROTHERS and move on..
John MillerSunday, December 02, 2012 4:55:37 PMmy thoughts and prays will be going out to night for them.
Shane Wreck SeiberSunday, December 02, 2012 8:12:02 PMi agree Tracy... we do not know what led up to this accident. I am sorry this happened , irregardless of how it happened... a fellow brother or sister being hurt is never good news. Speedy Recovery to all involved.
