    ANOTHER FF DOWN and 2 UPDATES


    Bad weekend. Here are two updates and an initial report as follows:

    1-FF DOWN: West Whiteland FD, PA.
    Initial reports are that a firefighter directing traffic at the scene of a house fire collapsed and went into cardiac arrest this afternoon. I have no additional information at this time.

    2-UPDATE: (CLOSE CALL) Prince Frederick, Calvert County, MD, Station #2. Basic, initial details are that the fire was reported in the basement in a single family dwelling, light smoke reported on arrival (all occupants out) with 2 engines and a truck on the scene with more companies enroute (30+ firefighters total) as a part of their standard 1st alarm assignment for a dwelling fire. At an early point on-2 firefighters came out w/burns and another firefighter trapped, who made it to a basement window, and was seen by exterior truck crews who rescued him from that basement window. The 2 firefighters who were burned were flown to Medstar (Washington DC) and are reported to be in stable conditions. More details to follow.

    3-UPDATE: Lancaster, Mass.
    These details are still sketchy but are from reliable fire officers whom I trust w/the info. The sources I spoke with advised that, on arrival, there was smoke showing, but nothing appearing unusually serious. The building is long and narrow, the firefighters were facing the narrow "A" side, with no obvious picture of the depth. As many as 15 civilians living there apparently all self
    evacuated. The firefighters stretched the line in, and went for the basement. There was a narrow 24" +/- stairway, they made a "U" turn at the bottom heading towards rear of the house... then there was heavy fire... fire officials are still unsure what caused that. Either just after or just before, an evacuation is called for... 3 firefighters come out. Firefighter Martin McNamara did not.
    Roll call is taken they discover him missing, go back, cannot rescue him immediately due to heavy fire, his size and narrow stairway. That's all that is available at this time.

    ALSO:

    -Go to http://www.FirefighterCloseCalls.com for a picture (home page, scroll down to NEWS/UPDATES) of the above and below described building on fire.

    -Below the articles is a piece written by a good friend and TSL Member, Peter Lamb called "It Happened Again..." Pete is the Director of the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy. Check it out... and like all this stuff-EDUCATE your firefighters with it.

    Our prayers go out to the family and friends of the West Whiteland Firefighter, and for the quick recovery of the Prince Frederick, MD Firefighters as well as the Clinton, MA, Deputy Fire Chief John McLaughlin who was upgraded from critical to serious condition last night at UMass.

    Take Care, Be Careful...

    It Happened Again...

    By Pete Lamb, Director, Massachusetts Firefighting Academy

    This is a difficult time to write a commentary. As I sit before the screen today the events of one day ago are weighing way too heavy upon me.

    The Town of Lancaster, Massachusetts has lost a firefighter at a structure fire yesterday. 3 other firefighters injured, one of them seriously. The seriously injured is a friend and a colleague.

    The original fire building is destroyed, a family and a community or two has been devastated.

    It was a basement fire.

    Just as I started to write the article, I received word of two firefighters from Maryland being injured in a basement fire.

    So what......There are probably 50-100 basement fires everyday across America. Firefighters go to basement fires.

    What happened yesterday in Lancaster could happen anywhere in the US tomorrow. It is a small town America, protected by a small group of dedicated firefighters.

    I raise that point because frustration has gotten me to that point. I guess it really doesn't matter that we kill 100 members a year in this country. I am sitting personally and emotionally drowning in the blood of my brothers because we believe that buildings are more important than us.

    I take my job as an instructor very seriously and professionally and those that know me, know that all too well.

    Isn't there something that we as fire instructors can do to make a change in this deluge of death? Are we doing enough to change the way a firefighter, or fire officer thinks?

    I was not at the scene of the emergency on Saturday Morning, but I think by it's outcome we see that something went terribly wrong.

    The formal investigation will take some time and find some facts, and there will be many stories of the heroism of other members who acted under difficult conditions. But to what end?

    Hundreds will descend upon the town of Lancaster on Tuesday to pay tribute to a young man. Hundreds will send emails and condolences to a young widow who is 9 months pregnant.

    What good will any of that do?

    To make some good come out of any tragedy there must be tough and difficult decisions that must be made.

    As fire officers and fire instructors be prepared and ready to make those decisions.

    Make your training VALID, and RELEVANT. Stop teaching popular techniques that are "fun to teach" and good "hands on stuff" when you know that some of these techniques have only a marginal chance of success, and may create a false sense of confidence. Some of the CRAP we are teaching will not help anyone who has already crossed a very thin threshold of safety by some building failure, or other catastrophic event.

    It takes "balls" to be a good instructor. Safety is not very popular. You will not be popular if you preach safety and instill it into every one of your evolution. If you are not ready to commit to that level of intestinal fortitude and you want to be popular with the guys, then keep headed the way you currently are. I suggest that you look at each and every training evolution you have and
    make sure the end objective is firefighter safety. If you cannot figure out why you are teaching a particular evolution or if there is no perceived safety benefit then change your thinking.

    We as a fire service in this nation have spent tens of thousands of training hours across the national lecture circuits teaching "last resort" and rapid intervention techniques. It is time to stop. Let's take our training back to preventing these "last resort" maneuvers. Focus on size up and air management training.

    If the investigation yields and lessons to be learned, then please incorporate those into your department's train in and sops.

    If the investigation does not yield any information, then make sure your members are fully aware of the dangers and risks of basement fires and all structural fires.

    As I typed those words, I shrugged my shoulders and re-read what I wrote....

    How stupid am I? We have all read the NIOSH reports of many previous line of duty deaths and injuries already. In 10 years we have killed 1000 men and women, excluding the 343 from FDNY, so make it 1300.

    We read the reports, we know the recommendations, we either don't care, or we just don't get it.

    If you are from the Northeast area and will be attending the funeral, do not get caught up in the pomp and circumstance of the flags, and class A uniforms and flag draped aerial ladders, but instead as you stand at attention and salute, focus your attention on the family, the mother and father and wife and children. As you listen to the strains and wails of the bagpipes that are all so present as we pay tribute to a brother firefighter, look at his family, and watch their pain and suffering, and tell me again how that now destroyed building was worth this.

    Maybe then we will get it.

    Stay safe, say a prayer or give your thoughts to the family of Firefighter Martin McNamara, and say a prayer or remember Deputy Chief John McLaughlin who is fighting to recover from injuries sustained.
