    They are Heroes!

    To all of you I say how sorry I am to hear about the loss of two very special people. Recently, we, on the coast of Oregon, had just experienced the loss of three men who lost thier lives in November on a structure fire. This was due to an illegal installation of a kiln.The men who installed it are facing criminal charges as well. Please support each other and stay focused. We all have a job to do. Dont let your team fall apart for any reason. You are all very special people and do things that most people wouldn't have anything to do with what we do. Please give our sincere sympathy to all the families and that they are in our prayers. Before going on duty at anytime, dont forget to tell you families how much you love them.
    Please take care and please be very safe.
    Sincerely
    Dann Barnes

      Like most, I too was thinking of the 3 in NY that died two years ago, and prayed that they would be the last. I hope that fathers day doesnt prove to be a deadly day for our family. I would like to extend my condolences to my brothers and sisters of the Mephis FD and to the friends and families of Lt. Trent Kirk and Pvt. Charles Zachary. Youre in our thoughts and prayers. Once again it is proven how dangerous metal/steel trusses really are. I hope that justice is served.

      Is it me, or does it seem like firefighters die in spurts? Nothing will happen for a while then all of a sudden 3 will go within a few days of eachother. Its really sad. =o(

              Update on LODDs

              MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The widow of a firefighter who died in an
              arson fire at a Family Dollar store has filed a $6.5 million
              wrongful death lawsuit against the store, the Memphis Fire
              Department and the maker of a self-contained breathing apparatus.
              Lt. Trent Kirk and Pvt. Charles Zachary, both 39, were killed
              June 15, 2003, after rushing into the burning store where a
              civilian was wrongly believed to be trapped inside. Kirk died at
              the scene from extensive burns, while Zachary died from smoke
              inhalation the next day.
              Anthony Paul Shaw, a manager of the store, is charged with
              setting the blaze. He is awaiting trial on federal arson charges in
              which a public safety officer died. If convicted, he will face life
              in prison or death.
              In the lawsuit filed in Circuit Court, Donna Kirk said her
              husband's death resulted in part from the store's inadequate
              staffing and inaccurate floor plan; an ineffective radio
              communication system and rescue plan by the fire department; and an
              inaccurate 30-minute rating on a German-manufactured air tank.
              According to the suit, the Dragerwerk company should have
              cautioned that the tank would provide air for about 10 minutes for
              a firefighter of Kirk's size, 6-foot-2 and 275 pounds.
              Authorities say the fire was set by Shaw to cover up the theft
              of money from the store's safe.

                Every one knew that this was coming. It is not unusual for families to sue after a member is killed in the line of duty. Usually someone, the department or a piece of equipment may have been at fault.

                  May God Bless Those Families

                  I think that they should diffently go for the death penalty for this blaten act of murder! That manager had to know he would put lives at risk! They out to burn him to death just like he did to LT. Kirk


                  REST IN PEACE OUR FALLEN BROTHERS
