Once again, your article starts in one place, and deteriorates into beating the fire department tragedy drum. So once again, I will post my list of questions. FYI, I will be posting these every time an article like this comes out until they are answered truthfully, in detail, and without bias.

I've added a few and put it in a list format. Maybe Mr. Becker can take this list and do some investigating. Answering these questions completely and thoroughly would be an excellent expose for the The Apopka Chief!

1. What is the make/model/manufacturer of the trailer? Can we get a picture of it?

2. Does the trailer have any warning or caution signage, or safety devices?

3. What is the specific sequence of events that led to this tragedy? The trailer didn’t tip itself. What happened step by step?

4. The sand trailer was universally deemed unsafe to use or maintain. Where are the vehicle maintenance records on this?

5. Who was the supervisor charged with the condition of this vehicle?

6. Was the Chief provided this information by the people charged with using and maintaining this vehicle?

7. Why was this vehicle not removed from service? Who decided to keep it in service?

8. What are the union’s standards with regards to operating unsafe equipment?

9. What are the union’s standards with regards to operating equipment you lack training to operate?

10. At what point can a union member say "That's not safe to do and I'm not doing it," and why didn't that happen? Who is responsible for that CRITICAL training? When to say no…
