    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I know a lot of local guys check these forums.

    This is the first chance I've had to post since getting out of work and NO ONE has posted any response to this.

    I pray for my brothers and all you should do the same.

    I see all these posts about guys wanting to get on the job but 8 of our brothers get injured and not a single one of you post anything showing your condolences? That's a little screwed up.

    While there is a thread going on about it at the link you posted, most of the guys who are posting in the threads about trying to get hired in New Britain, Hartford, and New Haven have posted here nor there.

    Default Update...

    From BC Mancini of Waterbury FD

    I received word this morning that Captain John Keane passed away early this
    morning from injuries sustained in the apparatus accident. I will forward
    the funeral arrangements as soon as I get them.

    Fire Driver Joe Fishetti is still in critical but stable condition at
    Waterbury Hospital. He seems to be improving.

    Again I would like to thank all of you for your support during this tragedy.
    Keep you posted.

    As I put in the firefighter forums.

    This is a sad day for the fire service. My thoughts go out to the family of Captain Keane and the Waterbury Fire Department.

    My husband went with a group of FF from his department (volunteer). He said they got in line at 7PM and didnt get inside until 8:20 because there was so many people there - lots of FF from all over CT.

    My heart goes out to the Waterbury FD and Capt. Keane's family!

    I went to the funeral this morning. There was a huge turnout of firefighters from all over CT, MA, RI, and NY. True Brotherhood through and through

    Stay Well, Stay Safe

    Not to mention 4 departments from NH and at least one from VT. Very good showing, IMO.
