I just wanted to pass along my condolences to you and the entire Yonkers Fire Department regarding the loss of FF Patrick Joyce. I looked for you at the funeral, but I knew you would also be busy as well.
I hope things will get easier as time passes. Let us know if you need anything!
Doug...nothing new in years...they probably corrected the problem, I assume. I know of no injuries from this. The only inflators that I am aware of having this problem is the driver bag inflator and in all cases I reviewed, the blast went straight out from the center of the wheel and thru the roof or sunroof.
