OH FF (2) LODD Notification

On Wednesday, 10-01-03, two (2) OH Fire Fighters were killed in the Line-of-Duty in New Knoxville, OH during an explosion.

FF Kenneth JUTTE of the New Breman FD was killed along with an unknown other Fire Fighter. Several other Firefighters were also injured.

The fire / explosion was at the Hoge Lumber Company in a 70' concrete silo. The FD was on scene for over two (2) hours when the explosion occurred. Brother Jutte was one of two FF's on top of the silo when the explosion occurred. Another FF was thrown from a nearby aerial bucket.

See http://www.firehouse.com for further details.

God Bless, Stay Safe and Keep the Faith.

New Bremen FUNERAL DETAILS (The Secret list)

The details for the two firefighters killed yesterday from the New Bremen, Ohio FD are as follows:

Firefighter Ken Jude
Viewing-Friday Evening 4 pm-8 pm-October 3, 2003
Funeral-Saturday Morning 1030 hours-October 4, 2003

Firefighter John Garman
Viewing-Sunday 2pm-8pm-October 5, 2003
Funeral-Monday Morning 1030 hours-October 6, 2003

All related above activities will be held at the Holy Redeemer Church located on Eastmore Drive, in the Village of New Bremen.

Directions: I-75 to the State Route 274 Exit...proceed WEST on SR 274 into New Bremen. The church is right off State Route 274. You will be directed as you approach the church. New Bremen is about an hour north of Dayton, Ohio. Additional information may be available at other www sites. We just received this from the Village Clerk of New Bremen... and have no additional details.

Below is also an additional updated news article.

TRAINING NOTE: re: SILO FIRES:

Be sure to check out http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/face/In-house/full8549.htm since on August 27, 1985, three OTHER Ohio fire fighters were killed when a burning silo exploded. Naturally, there may be different circumstances that occurred yesterday-but until official reports are available, the general subject of "silo fires" will certainly come up amongst all of us-at all of our firehouses-and maybe this information will help.

During the 1985 fire, the firefighters were directing water onto the fire from the top of the silo at the time of the explosion. The above site link is of interest-and can be used for discussion as firefighters discuss yesterday's tragic event. Without question-we all mourn the horrible loss of our Brothers from yesterday-but information such as above may also serve to further all firefighters' training on this specific subject...and deeply respect and HONOR the tragic loss and memories of Firefighters Ken Jude and John Garman by learning how to prevent such tragedies from occurring in the future.

Take Care-BE CAREFUL.

AUSTRALIA
New South Wales Fire Update - 1st October 2003


Another day of mild conditions, and some rain, largely assisted more than 400 firefighters to do containment work today, although backburning was hampered in the Northern Tablelands.

There are still 59 fires in NSW, generally in the Northern Tablelands and Twin Rivers areas, however the majority are contained and being patrolled.

Rain assisted operations in Cessnock and Wyong, where Section 44 `bushfire emergency' declarations have been lifted as fire activity has decreased. Firefighters achieved containment of Cessnock's fires in the Laguna, Wollombi, Bucketty area before rain affected firegrounds.

Backburning was conducted in Hastings despite drizzle. Crews were pulled off fire grounds this afternoon due to wet and slippery conditions. Eight of the 12 fires in Hastings are contained and work will continue in generally favourable conditions tomorrow.

Rain hampered backburning and containment work in the Tenterfield area. Crews were removed from slippery, dangerous firegrounds. The rain will help the number of fires that are contained and being patrolled, but has not assisted fires requiring containment lines.

A land gale predicted for the Northern Tablelands this evening may cause firegrounds to rapidly dry and increase fire activity.

HASTINGS KEMPSEY

Drizzling rain has fallen on the Twin Rivers area assisting firefighting efforts. Fortunately, the rain did not hamper backburning activity today and containment work continued, although slippery dangerous conditions forced crews off the fireline this afternoon.

Of the 12 fires burning in the Hastings district eight are contained and being patrolled. Containment work continues on the other four.

Viewmont fire in Nambucca District is now out.
Nambucca and Kempsey Fires looking good with an expectation that the main focus of Section 44 operations will be on the fires in the Hastings area. The four fires in Kempsey are contained.

NORTHERN TABLELANDS - Tenterfield, Severn, Inverell

Drizzling rain is affecting the Northern Tablelands. This may assist the number of fires around Tenterfield which are being patrolled, but has forced crews off the firegrounds and stopped containment work on other fires.

The rain has hampered backburning and containment activities.
A land gale warning has been issued for this evening. If predicted strong winds eventuate they may dry the fireground out and cause complications for fires still requiring containment.
Fires of concern are Hewetts Peak Complex, McMinmus and Oaks.
