  • Seattle firefighters stage rescue in West Virginia

    Nice job! I offer a crisp hand salute!


    (Beckley, West Virginia-AP) -- Five Seattle firefighters got to
    put their rescue skills to work for real -- in West Virginia.
    The four are undergoing training at the Center for National
    Response to learn techniques for dealing with accidents inside
    tunnels.
    As they were returning to their hotel yesterday along Interstate
    64 near Beckley (West Virginia), they noticed smoke about a quarter
    mile ahead. They found a car on its side, on fire, and with a woman
    inside.
    While two of the firefighters used extinguishers to try to push
    the flames back from the driver, firefighter Todd Rademacher tried
    to reach the unconscious woman, whose hair and car seat were
    ablaze. He couldn't reach her at first, but yelled at her until she
    woke up and reached for him.
    A local fire truck and paramedic then arrived to put out the
    fire and take care of the woman.
    The other firefighters involved were Lieutenant Matt Rogers,
    Tony Bennett, Ed Nelson and Mike Todd.

          I used to live near Seattle, and have always admired the Seattle Fire Department. Someone my mom knows used to be a FF with them and he said that it is a great department.

          What's great is not only did they rescue the woman but they did not expect praise or anything. They were humble about it.

          WAY TO GO GUYS!!!
