    Default Off Topic - FIRE APPARATUS CRASH

    Last night one of our engines was involved in a crash where 3 civilians were killed.

    Here is the info that Billy Goldfeder posted this morning.

    FIRE APPARATUS CRASH KILLS 3 CIVILIANS IN MISSOURI

    About 17:30 CST time last night (Saturday evening) Engine 11 of the Moreau Fire Protection District in Missouri was returning to quarters from a structure fire when it was involved in a very tragic crash. Engine 11 is a 13 year old custom engine and only had the driver on board. A civilians vehicle crossed the center line on a curve on US 87 north of Eldon, Missouri and hit the fire apparatus head on. The Firefighter who was operating the rig is ok and was wearing his seat beat which kept him from being ejected through the windshield. Tragically there were 3 fatalities in the civilian vehicle which had 7 total passengers.
    We will post more on our home page later.
    Take Care-BE CAREFUL.

    I'm glad to hear your guy is OK!

    I actually heard about that this afternoon when we were eating lunch at Chili's in Jeff City. The waitress said some guys were in last night talking about it. I had no idea it was one of yours!

    Dang Mike how is the operator holding up. This has to be hard on him and on the rest of you for that matter. You had to work it.

    Seatbelts also saved lives in Kentucky, they may be a pain but they will prevent much worse pain.
