The video of a house fire in Dunmore, Pennsylvania last week is especially gruesome. The homeowner, a 62year old male captain, had just died from his injuries. The captain had responded to multiple fires over the years in the area and was well respected within the department. It is ironic, this week as we are reminded of another example of warped incentives in action.
Another recent example of warped incentives occurred at an airport in Georgia. A young volunteer firefighter was injured in a flip off the tailboard of a check cabin. While the victim was on the ground, another member was injured when the aircraft he was on slammed into the back of the rig. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
It is ironic, another member of Squad 303 at the scene was injured and subsequently released. The City of Dunmore, Firefighters Association says the victim had a medical emergency prior to the incident and that the Fire Department was unaware of the severity of his injuries. The victim was later notified of his release and taken to the hospital for treatment.
