    As I've said before, any other industry where there is a steady, regular OTJ mortality rate of 1 in every 2 or 3 days, OSHA would be there so fast to shut it down, your head will spin.

    Amen brother. I collect patches, but this is one collection I will gladly see remain empty.

    I don't know any more than what I have read here, but I have to wonder if a better set of tires could have saved his life. The only work I do on the street is an occasional transport, but even so, my opinion of the RS-A, which I believe is still the industry standard, is not good. Yes, they are about as tough a tire as one could find, but that's about the only good point I see. Again, I truly hope crappy tires did not cost this man his life.

    Godspeed.

    In an ideal world, all personnel should be getting the best equipment and training money can buy. Over and over again. Heck, money should not even be an issue. But that's the ideal world.

    On a side note, I recently found out that in my agency, when a tire goes flat due to a nail, etc... that tire is replaced with a new tire, not patched up. Is this SOP with other agencies/departments?
