Has anyone viewed this footage? If so, what do you think of it?
I have questions about some statements made by representatives… Mainly, the statement “that BCFD is a team effort and no one is expected to raise a 16′, 18′, or 24′ ladder by themselves.” Really??
It brings into question : 1.”if someone does raise such ladders by themselves. Are they liable for NOI, Safety Violation, or non-compensatory Line-of-duty claim.
2. How does this relate to those who have been previously injured from attempting to “raise” such ladders by themselves.
I never seen the clip you mention. Wasn’t that the way it was done anyway? Has the job changed that much? The step man seen what was needed done and did it..period. Most times another member wasn’t around to help. Each person had an assignment and did it. No questions, no holding hands……
