Many of the old timers may remember a video, circa 1982 that is a great example of why we wear our PPE, no matter what we are doing on or above a fire. The video is narrated in part by the firefighter himself; he was in his bunker pants and helmet, carrying a saw (I believe) up the ladder. The fire flashed from underneath the aerial and he caught fire and rapidly descended the ladder running over a firefighter in the process. The firefighter made it down the ladder and was quickly hosed down. He goes on to provide an interview regarding the extensive burn treatment. Although tragic, this gentleman lived and, in my humble opinion saved many of our lives by telling his story.
Does anyone know where I can get a download of this video? I looked on the videos here and many other places and cannot find it.
Thanks...BE SAFE!!! Scott
