Nicely said.  As a professional Volunteer Fireman, our department 
preaches that we want everyone to come home safely.  Saving people is 
wonderful but do it safely and do not create another incident within the 

I've been in the fire service for more than twenty-eight years and a 
union member for that entire time. We lose more than one hundred 
brothers and sisters every year to heart attack, stroke, cancer, 
building collapse, vehicle accident, etc... and constantly preach safety 
through the use of better gear and safer practices - both to our 
employer and to each and every one of our members. My entire job 
revolves around the saving of life and property by taking calculated 
risks that are thankfully overseen by NIOSH, the NFPA and a host of 
others. Sadly, though, sometimes the physics of fire or the physiology 
of our own bodies fail us but I'm still glad there are SOP's to be 
followed. Some days, it becomes all about slowing down and thinking 
things through so that you can go home safely at the end of your 24 hour 
shift. 73, Jon Pearl - W4ABC
