FireRescue1 Weekend Edition
June 20, 2014
Dear Member,
In this week's news, a Mont. fire chief died after a fire truck and another vehicle collided head-on, while an Ill. city is considering privatizing its fire department, saying rising pension costs have forced them to make drastic changes.

And, listen to this week's episode of The Command Post — where our experts join forces with Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson's Inside EMS podcast to debate fire-based vs. private EMS.

"As a training officer, I almost lost a firefighter in a training event. Luckily, he didn't get hurt. I didn't sleep for several days thinking that I might have caused the loss of life. I did better pre-planning after that."
