    I wear my belt 95% of the time, but occasionaly I forget as for my crew if they buzz I assume they are belted in. Unfortunetly w/ our new trucks we been having a problem with the FF standing in the back.

    I'm a single daddy and my 8 yr old daughter doesn't care what burns, she just want her daddy to come back home after each call.
    Besides I ALWAYS tell her "I love you and I'll be back" I would hate to become a liar.


    Be safe BUCKLE UP!!!

    MOST DEFINITELY...WHENEVER I AM RIDDING ON THE ENGINE IT WILL NOT LEAVE THE BAY UNTIL ALL MEMBERS ARE BELTED IN. WE TRAIN AND STRIVE TO KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN WE ARE DOING TRAINING, SO WHEN THE TONE GOES OFF IT WILL STICK IN ALL MEMBERS HEAD TO BUCKLE UP. IT IS LIKE PUTTING YOUR GEAR ON, IT SHOULD COME TO YOU LIKE SECOND NATURE...

    For all of those who don't wear your belt, START.
    I was involved in an accident involving a piece of apparatus less than a week ago. The seatbelt saved my life as well as taking the hit squarely on the frame in this headon crash.
    Before you roll out the door think of family and ptu the belt on.

    I would say the 90 percent of the time I do wear my seatbelt, and the rest of the time its because I overlooked putting it on, not because I didn't want to. My bigger concern is that now that I am all strapped in, all the stuff in the cab has a nice staedy target to hit if we get in an accident. When are we going to stop putting projectiles in our cabs?

    As for it being the engineers responsibilty not to operate the truck until all are belted, true. However, when the guys in the seat say all set, I assume they are. I am not going to get out and check them, and it is their responsibilty if they are not belted in. It is a policy in my department as well.

    If in my personal Vehicle I do wear it some of the time. My 7 year old will remind me of it. On the way to the station for a call-no....in the apparatus-no. I know that we should, but do not. It is the adrenalin rush.....affects memory.

    In my dept. it is in the S.O.P's that ALL PERSONS will be belted in at ALL times. If we respond to a M.V.A. with ejection why should we do the same stupid thing and go out without ours on. Remember one thing our life saftey comes before anything or anyone. I would rather take a few extra seconds to get belted in than taking off without the belt on. Remember this is just my opinion. Happy Holidays to all. Please Stay safe

    Always, every time. POV or fire rig. Why? No. 1--common sense. 2-- Town policy is for everyone in the rig to wear a seatbelt.

    You asked for my opinion, now you have it. Any similarity to another opinion, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

    Dear ffirefighter, do not play with fate, it will get you at some point. The seal belts are in OUR apparatus for a good reason and they are not to just look at. Wear them, I do not want to see the LOFF notice telling us you have died because you were not doing the right thing. Maybe you could ask your wife her opinion of whether you should or not.

    [QUOTE]Originally posted by fm2b:
    I saw a poll on the main page that asked if you wear your seatbelt when responding to a run on the truck or engine. I wasn't able to review the results, but I am curious- do you wear your seatbelt? Reasons for wearing one are obvious, but I don't wear mine. Do you?

    I HAVE TO SAY THAT I HAVE NEVER ONCE WORN MY SEATBELT EITHER ON DRILLS, CALLS, OR EVEN COVERING FOR FIREWORKS DISPLAYS. TO TELL THE TRUTH I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT OUR APPARATUS HAD SEATBELTS UNTILL ABOUT 3 MONTHS AFTER I JOINED. ALSO OUR RESCUE SQUAD ONLY HAS BELTS FOR THE DRIVER AND OFFICER, WHICH IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MANY REASONS WE'RE GETTING A NEW ONE. BUT I DOUBT I'LL WEAR A BELT IN THAT TRUCK EITHER.

    Everyone in our company wears them. To and from alarms, or when we are just in service. We also secure our air packs.

    ALWAYS!!!!!!!!!!

    Last week two teenagers were killed when the vehicle they were in rolled. Both were ejected, the driver who was wearing her seatbelt walked away with minor injuries. One was the son of one of the paramedics who responded.

    Neither my car or any apparatus I'm driving turn a wheel until I'm belted in. My former dept, where we had fully staffed engines and paramedic units, if I was in the jumpseats (fully enclosed) I would delay belting in until the SCBA pack was on - more than once I had somehow attached myself to the seatbelts and gotten stuck. In the back of the ambulance, most of the time it was impractical to be belted, no matter how bad you wanted to be. I guess working the patient in back includes some calculated risks . . .
