  • Truss Construction

    Here is an interesting discussion thread on the website of Fine Homebuilding magazine.

    http://forums.taunton.com/n/main.asp...49&find=Search

    The poster, Boss Hog, is apparently involved in the truss industry. He's pretty much saying that the reason firemen are dying in truss fires is because they should be standing outside watching it burn. He's also saying that Brannigan's articles are all emotion and no fact. I can't believe this guy.

    He's using some skewed statistics from the truss injury that says that trusses have no real impact on the deaths of firefighters.

    Brannigan say "know your enemy". Now we do, it's guys like this.

    The question is.......

    WHo are you going to believe: an anonymous poster who calls himself "Boss Hog" on an architectural bulletin board or Frank Brannigan, Vinnie Dunn, John Norman, Jim Smith and other fire service professionals?

    By the way, here is "Boss Hog"

                    Daisy, played by Catherine Bach, was born March 1st, 1954 in Warren, Ohio.

                    That would make her a mere...........49!
