    May God Bless Those Families

    On behalf of the Satsuma Fire Rescue & Jackson Fire Departments,we send our most sincere condolences to the Mephis Fire Dept. and to the Famlies who lost love ones in this tragedy.May god give you peace and understanding to deal with this matter.
    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

    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.

    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.

    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(

    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
    Assistant Fire Chief
    Lakeside Fire Department

    My sincere condolences go out to the families, friends and coworkers of Lt. Trent Kirk and Firefighter Charles Zachary. There are no words that comfort you, but they died doing what they loved to do. There is a special place in heaven for heroes who risk their lives so that others may live.

    1)I hope the federal government will seek the same penalty as for the death of a police officer in the comission of a felony.

    2) I hope the families of these brothers find peace and all the support they need at this tragic time.

    3)I hope we will learn from this concerning the reaction of a Type II building with light weight truss roofs and sufficiant fire loading to fire impingment. 5 minutes at the most, if you have to enter (as they did) put water on the steel trusses, freeze it in place, and maybe buy yourself some time.

    Yet again our Brotherhood has fallen victim to tragedy. Let us all remember the families of those lost in Memphis, and of course remember those brothers in Memphis who are left behind to continue fighting fires. Once more we are reminded that Father's Day can become a sad memorial like any other day, however our sadness as brothers can never compare to the sadness felt by the children who will never again celebrate Father's Day. Let us keep in our thoughts and prayers the hope that next year, and in the years to come, we will all have a safe and happy Father's Day.

    On behalf of the Officers and Firefighters of the Belltown Fire Department, I extend our deepest sypathies and our heartfelt condolances to the families of the fallen. May they rest in peace.
