    Volunteer firefighter dies directing traffic
    KENDALL, N.Y. (AP) - A volunteer firefighter died early Wednesday after he was struck by a car while directing traffic at an accident scene.

    Rick Buongiorne, 48, was struck shortly before 5:30 p.m. Tuesday as he diverted traffic from an accident in which a power pole had been knocked over.

    An eastbound vehicle driven by Adam Henry of Kendall struck Buongiorne from behind, sending him under a truck.

    Buongiorne was taken to Lakeside Memorial Hospital in Brockport, then transferred to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester where he died at 3 a.m.

    Neither Henry nor Tom Buzard, the driver of the truck, was charged. The accident remains under investigation and weather appears to have been a factor.

    Kendall is 24 miles west of Rochester.

    It angers me to see it the past months of FFs being struck by vehicles that have no respect or any clue to traffic safety around a emergency, Public education is a must in this area! Please everyone stay safe and watch your back!

        I defenetly agree with you on this subject, but the only thing is that this accident wasn't just because of some ignorant SOB behind the wheel of a car. According to the report on the homepage, the Chief said that there was snow, blowing snow and icy road conditions. We can't just assume that the driver just aimed for the firefighter, the car came from the opposite direction. The vehicle was already past the accident.

          Our condolences to Ricks family, may they find help and support in their family and friends.
          Having spent two years as a member of our departments Fire Police I know first hand how dangerous a job it is.
          I have now resumed my duties as an interior firefighter, but make it a practice to salute the brave guys that try to keep our scenes safe.

            May God be with our Brother's two families (civilian and firefighting) and help them (us) deal with another loss. In our branch of the service (unpaid professionals) the Fire Police are kind of the forgotten group. They need and deserve our utmost respect for what they do at each and every call. They are out in the cold and dark and have no idea what condition that person driving towards them is in. I do not wish to change my position of interior firefighter with anyone one of my Brothers or Sisters who puts their life on the line each and every call and are seldom thought about.
            Not only do they risk their lives every call, they do it to save ours and make our jobs easier when we are on a scene. I hope that each and everyone of you that has a chance to deal with a Fire Police member takes the time to thank them for the great job they do. I know that I learned that early in my career and thank them every chance I get.
            Be Safe,

                  My condolences to the family, close friends and fellow crew members of Rick Buongiorne. Even over the 'water' the pain can be felt. I am sure that he will be sadly missed by all that had the pleasure to meet him. He will always be with you in your thoughts, never let that go.

                  My prayers are with you during this very sad time.

                      That is not good. That puts us on track to hit 132 for the year. One is too many, especially when some are preventable, but 132 would be the highest in memory.
