    Question Close Call

    Does anyone have any "close call" stories of when they were injured, nearly injured, or witnessed an accident on call?

    Hey, not sure if you're familiar with these two websites, but they're along the same lines that you're asking about...

    National Firefighter Near-Miss Reporting System
    Firefighter Close Calls

    Career Fire Captain
    Volunteer Chief Officer


    Never taking for granted that I'm privileged enough to have the greatest job in the world!

    the near miss website has a few good incidents on there, but most of the "near misses" are from safety sallies who forgot to wear eye protection or saw a ladder that wasn't footed.

    You should be able to click a button that suspends the use of creating a new thread for users, based on a number of votes.
