    Sadly, it won't change anything. Every time an incident like this happens, the blowhards that actively refuse to wear them will continue to brush it off as some bull$hit hazard of the job. And they'll continue to teach new firefighters the same thing.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Yea, there is some out there that still dont wont to wear there seat belts. But saying it wont help is a little harsh. If we show this at our depts. it may change the mind of one person on the next call. Great video, thanks for sharing.

    Its not harsh. Its reality. I tell people how i almost was killed because I didn't have my seatbelt on in the engine back when I didn't think it was needed. And the response I get is the same everytime: "I'm not putting that ****ing thing on." or some other caveman retard response about it not being cool. The only people that listen are the ones who already wear them, or the explorers who are still impressionable and trust what I taught them.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Aerialguy or other readers,

    As I am not as computer literate as I probably should be do you know how to simply download this so that I can show it at departments who do not have internet services for training?

    The format should be compatable with Windows media player.

    Thanks for your help.
