Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

This illustration is in response to the many letters and emails I've received from followers of my commentary. They state that texting and responding in department vehicles or POVs is becoming very commonplace - and has resulted in a few accidents, as well. To be honest, I'm guilty of doing it myself on occasion. Not while responding, but driving to the station or running daily errands. This commentary will not apply to all, but my guess is most everyone will relate it to someone they know, if not themselves. It was sobering to draw it, and a reminder that NO text or email is worth my life or the life of another!
