Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I'm currently in a bit of a downer as we all get when just having attended a bad RA. I at about 15:10 this afternoon a motorist collided head on with a road tanker carrying phosphoric acid 50-60%. The motorist was travelling at approximately 140 km and texting on his cellphone whilst driving. After the body was removed (in 2 parts) a car stopped and a young women got out insisting on information about the driver. The police dept quickly ascertained it was her husbands car and a friend had alerted her that he had been in a RA. We managed to lead her away and hand her over to the paramedics before she could see the body. When are people going to get it - if you don't care about yourself then at least care about those around you.
