I agree nothing is worth a life that is in a dumpster.
This is a terrible reminder that we are in a dangerous business. Train our people regularly on structures, dumpsters, and everything in between. Rest in Peace Brother!
Heard about this one already. What a horrible thing and sad to hear. I agree that this is a reminder of how dangerous our job is no matter how mundane and routine the call sounds or initially appears. Things can definitely change in an instant. I was not able to open the link does anyone know what came of the investigation that we can all learn from?
