Of the four LODDs so far this year, (and it is only Jan 5th), three are vehicle related. Two are apparently related to traveling too fast for conditions, the other lack of situational awareness. In addition to those killed several firefighters are in the hospital after being struck while working on scene and after a tender rollover. Being killed in the line of duty doesn't necessarily make you a hero; often, it is just the opposite.
