01/14/10 108 W, 2 I - + 6 - 9 Fire & Rescue Journal, Winter 2009

The Winter 2009 issue of Fire & Rescue Journal has been published on the web site of the Office of the State Fire Marshal. The numerous articles include 2009 fire safety legislative updates, the National Fallen Firefighter's Foundation's life safety initiatives, questions and answers on ladder/service company requirements, and, catching Mr. Blogger's attention, a historical perspective of the Lowe's Motor Speedway pedestrian bridge collapse in Concord on May 20, 2000. Following an evening race, the bridge collapsed onto Highway 29. The article recounts both what happened and lessons learned at the incident, which resulted in 107 patients treated and transported.
