Colorado Tender Accident, Lessons Learned

South Metro Fire Rescue PIO – Last August, Franktown Fire Protection District experienced one of the worst days a department and their members can experience.  Two of our firefighters were seriously injured in a rollover crash responding to a structure fire in another jurisdiction.  We are revisiting that crash and discussing the lessons learned. Although this story is about a water tender, the message is for any department or business with resources utilizing air brakes.  We hope that these lessons can improve the safety for all of our brothers and sisters in the fire service. The full video may have images that can be upsetting.  

* Correction – During Part 2 the Firefighter misspoke and called the air dryer an air filter.  A corrected version of the inspection is available by emailing the PIO contact below. *
