Today was a rough day for at least 3 fire departments and the associated families. Above are 2 pictures of the 3 that have passed.
No LODD is good, they are all tragic, one even happened in my home state of Virginia which always hits close to home.
Even worse is having them this close to what is supposed to be one of the happiest times of the year.
As with any LODD investigations will be done, speculations will be made, and opinions will be stated. No matter what let us remember to be respectful, and honorable to those that have passed but to also take away any learning points we can from each LODD. Failing to do so would do a disservice to each of these fireman, and to their families.
Let us in this holiday season remember
Lt. Jeff Little Waycross Fire
Firefighter Joshua Smith La Crosse VFD
Firefighter Terry R. Guss South Zanesville Fire
Also remember both their families and departments as they deal with the loss of their brothers.
As usual thanks for reading, spread the word, and STAY SAFE!
