Dear Member,
In this week's news, a truck manufacturer accepted responsibility for causing an accident on an aerial that injured three firefighters, while a firefighter who went into cardiac arrest when lightning struck him at a soccer game has been upgraded from critical to serious condition.

And, listen to this week's episode of The Command Post — where our experts discuss the cover-up culture in the fire service and the critical first few moments on arrival at a motor vehicle accident.

Support First Responders
Please help hazmat First Responders ask DOT to consider adding secondary containment, top-fitting protection to rail tank cars that are used to transport liquefied chlorine gas. Secondary containment will eliminate the extreme hazards associated with the use of The Chlorine Institute "C"-Kit. This will provide much needed safety to First Responders.

Top Comments of the Week
