Dear Member,
In this week's news, the NFPA released its annual Firefighter Fatality Report, citing 97 on-duty firefighter deaths in 2013, while N.C. Supreme Court justices ruled that a fire truck stop did not affect a DWI verdict.

And, listen to this week's episode of The Command Post — where our experts discuss a study that claims Boston Fire and EMS is the most expensive emergency services department in the country, and how to stay involved with elected officials.

"What I see is one community's interpretation of the state law, which, to date, has gone unchallenged in court. The law is very specific as to who can use lights and sirens. A court challenge to this particular use could be interesting."
