      05/28/21 - IAFF Local 902
      Nearly 75% of drownings involving children happen at home — a sobering statistic, and one that is more relevant than ever this summer. While a small pool is a great way to beat the heat, fire fighters and emergency medical responders are urging homeowners to practice simple safety rules to avoid a tragedy.
      It was nearly 100 degrees outside when the emergency call reached Engine Company 39. A triple-decker in Savin Hill had erupted in flames, and a haze of thick black smoke was all but blanketing the sky.
