    Yes....Anndee Huber was considerd a LODD. She did recieve a LODD funeral too.


    Anndee Hubers MURDER is still a very sensitive subject with other explorers and I.
    To me Anndee Huber was the Woscester 6 for fire explorers. My blood still boils when I think about it. I carry a little reminder of what happend to this day on my helmet.

    The only thing I ask is that people who read her story learn the lessons that it teaches. Let her tragic death not be in vain. I am 100% sure we can prevent another tragedy like the one in Newcastle.

    Anndee was killed almost a year ago. Check the date on the first post. For those that want more information, there are other old threads as well, just do a search and I'm sure you'll have all your questions answered.

    Anndee, you are honored and remembered by many, many people Sleep with angels sweet child.

    After I read this article, I thought that shes just a little younger than I am, and that really it can happen to anyone. My deepest sympathies go out to her family, friends, and the members of her fire dept. She had her whole life to live. May our Sister Rest in Peace.

    Is her death considered to be In the Line of Duty? And will her funeral be like that of another FF's LODD funeral? I don't know if somebody can answer this or not, but an answer would be much appreciated! thanks

    Rollover accident

    Thats a damn shame what happened. My dad was responding on his company's new aerial and someone cut them off and they rolled into a ditch, all of the firefighters were wearign seat belts so they were fine, but the guy that cut them off they ended up helping because he had no seat belt on and was in critical condition.

    Seatbelts are so crucial. God Bless.

    That is a shame
    I sympathize with the families of the victim.

    I think that a member that posted on this forum said "Only the Good Die Young." That is very true.

    I think that in this world, not many teenagers want teenagers are dedicated to helping people. Junior Firefighters are very unique. I think that Junior Firefighters are an example of what a kid should be: helpful(If you disagree, then fine but dont bash me or anyone else). And when someone so young dies in the line of duty I find it to be a horrible event....

    Truly Horrible

    even thought I cant get a ticket
    Don't be too sure of that. Im sure the law is the same there as it is here. Firetrucks also have to comply with all motor vehicle laws, which includes seatbelts. What you most likely meant was that the Law Enforcement Officers there won't write you a ticket, even though they CAN. Seatbelts are put there for a reason, so again, don't sit on a good idea!

    as I state earlier

    before I got my new name because I didnt like the last one. I wear my seatbelt most of the time. I do remember times that I have forgotten. Or needed to put on gear. But most of the time if getting geared up or a quick arrival isnt necessary or going to happen I'll click it.. even thought I cant get a ticket..

    the copy i got for the fire station just came in the other day. i havent had a chance to look through it yet but it's thick enough to have some really useful info

    sad

    It is, really. I wear my seatbelt anyways. Not only is it in our by-laws. BUT, it is a personal step I take anyways.

    I feel really bad for the family. I think the driver should also be charged with neglegent homicide with all the other charges (driving under the influence, manslaughter...) I feel sorry for the girl and her family, but yet another tradgedy that could have been avoided.
