Where firefighters come to talk training

It's a simple question, really - what would you miss out on if you unexpectedly died? There's no doubt, whether you're career or volunteer, that this is a dangerous profession - and the importance of seatbelts is not a new philosophy. But year after year we read the latest LODD report about yet another Brother or Sister being lost to this asinine complacency! I don't get it! We train on flashover, we train on orientation, we train on tactics, ventilation, extrication, we even train on RIT to act when all these things go wrong - but we can't seem to find that seatbelt buckle. Come on, we're smarter than this - and most of all, we owe it to our families. The illustration is simple in its message, and I hope each of you ask yourself this question; what would you miss?

Buckle up!!
