Riding unsecured on a moving apparatus is risky behavior that has life-altering consequences. Forces generated by speeds of just 5 mph are strong enough to break the grip of an adult and result in serious injury. Failing to be seated and seatbelted is reckless behavior that can result in a near miss, injury or death. Families are left wondering, “Why was my loved one not belted? Who was in charge and allowed that to happen?” Who among us has prepared themselves to stand in front of a bereaved family and tell them that their loved one was seriously injured or killed while riding unbelted on a rig and it was “just part of the job”?
Bottom line: There are any number of places where we can take action to prevent, not just reduce, injuries. Securing ourselves and ensuring that everyone else riding with us is belted and secured is a no-brainer. Be safe.
Yes I have been reading again and still hate reading about firefighters not being belted in as most of us will say oh, we are just going down the street or just around the corner, yea right.
So with all that said 'Let's have a fun and safe 4th of July and hope to see everyone back here on July 7th. " Remember don't drink & Drive.
