Where firefighters come to talk training

FireFighter Fatalities in Colerain Twp. Ohio

This morning two firefighters were killed in a working house fire in Colerain Twp. Ohio. That is north of Cincinnati. The two entered with one other firefighter and the floor collapsed. One firefighter exited. Two fell into the basement. The occupant was out upon arrival. I am sure more news will be coming on this fire.
I can not, nor will I comment on what happened this morning at this fire. I was not at the fire and my only information comes from the local T.V. My only question is:
WHEN WILL IT BE TIME TO LOOK AT HOW MANY FIREFIGHTERS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN FULLY-SPRINKLERED RESIDENTIAL STRUCTURE FIRES?

My prayers go out to these FF's and thier comdares and familys. I notice that most of the 34 LODD this year have been from falling though floors and roofs. I think we need training to stop this. Ed
