We have these Sundays all that time across the country. And then it happens, structure fire.
Today Toledo Fire Rescue Department lost two Brothers. They are Private Stephen A. Machinski, 42 and Private James Dickman, 31. Both were assigned to Engine 3. While conducting an interior attack at a 6 unit apartment building, they became disoriented. When the two firefighters were found they were in cardiac arrest and efforts to revive them were unsuccessful. Rest In Piece Brothers.
I think this really shows that this can happen at any department in any state. Anyone else on shift today? I bet your day was a lot like Toledo’s day, right? And then it happens. You don’t have to be FDNY or Chicago to lose your people. Shit’s real man.
