    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I was right..they drove through a road closed sign. Here it is from the Wellington Fire Department website. I would hope there would be some charges forthcoming since they ignored the sign and as a result a firefighter died.

====================

"At 1:18 pm, on June 22, 2006, the Wellington Fire District responded to a 911 call for a water rescue, in Wellington Township. The department's Dive Rescue members responded to the call, with inital reports of two juveniles, in the water. The initial attempt to save the juveniles, who had attempted to drive their vehicle through the ROAD CLOSED barricades and rushing water, was unsuccesful. During a second attempt to reach the juveniles, Diver Anderson entered the water, attached to a safety line. Water conditions rapidly deteriorated and he was overcome by the water current. At that point, the diver was extricated by rescue personnel using his attached safety line.

While Anderson was being removed, additional personnel successfully reached the two victims and removed them safely from the water.

After Anderson was removed from the water, medical care was initiated by fire and EMS personnel. He was eventually transported by Lifeflight to Cleveland Metro Hospital. Resuscitation efforts at the hospital were unsuccessful.

Al "Buzz" Anderson was 47 years old. He served on the Wellington Fire District's Dive Rescue team for four years and was a trained swift water rescue diver with fifteen years experience. Buzz was married to his wife Julie for 20 years and had four children.

This is the third Line of Duty death for the Wellington Fire District in its 125 year history and first in thirty years. The firefighters and Board of Trustees of the Wellington Fire District extend their sincere sympathy to the Anderson family and want it known that their brother died a hero."
