    Default Wear Your Seatbelts

    We buried the wife of one of my Firefighters today.She was 24 yrs. old.She left behind a husband and a 10 month old son.Her Toyota 4 Runner rolled one time.There is no doubt a seat belt would have saved her.Drive safely and wear your seatbelts.

    Terrible at any time, but particularly sad at this time of year. My sympathies to you and your department.

    I've seen a guy with 25 years on the department in tears over someone saying as we extricated them that"They didn't have time to put on their seat belt"and that being their last words.
    He!! of a thing for that to be the reason to leave this life,ain't it?
