    VOICES: Unjustly Unpaid

    While fighting the Meagram Fire in 1999, I was badly injured on Denny Road when the fire truck I was a passenger in, a foaming unit, drove off the bank. The driver, a fellow firefighter, fell asleep at the wheel after working too many days past his allowable shift. Firefighters are allowed to work 21 days before they are required to take two days of “R & R”. He worked 22 days straight on a different fire and then came directly to the Meagram without the required R & R. - See more at: http://www.tworiverstribune.com/2014/02/voices-unjustly-unpaid/#sthash.uwOKIfmT.dpuf
