Nice gesture to recognizing him, but the whole story itself should serve a grim reminder to all. You cannot help someone in need if in fact you become a victim yourself. Speeding & losing your life on a winding back road wasn't worth the garage fire that day - so I've been told that was the call. The road is narrow, corner tight, car and tractor each a little toward the center <<< details details details >>> none of which bring him back.

Rest in peace Nathan, miss you. Can"t seem not to notice almost all the members who were around at that time are not there anymore. Maybe problems with the current chief?

Hey concerned its not blame its fact, and something to be realized by all. Also do some homework - you might discover the farmer was was actually related to the family....so keep on typing there ASS-CLOWN.
Oh boy

OH BOY your in trouble - how dare you state one of the obvious fact(ors)...but yer right on the money. The initial post wasn't a derrogetory statement towards anyone but a very realistic reminder of how quickly things can change. Speed kills, slow down and save a life, yes it even applies to VFD personnel who've been driving for what, 2 years max?

Stop just Stop don't be a jerk. It is sad and Nathan will be missed but too many young fireman get over zealous and speed when responding to a call. The farm tractor was on a road in the middle of his fields around here you have to watch out for that sort of stuff it was a tradgedy that could have been prevented too many volunteers are killed while speeding in their POV's one thing is we all have learned from this and are now extra cautious when responding. We can't lay too much blame here on the farmer we miss you Nathan

Please don't turn this tradgedy into a political issue. there are many current members that were there that day and many not because of retirement and other issues if you have issues with the current chief thats fine but don't make that about Nathan
oh yeah

Just remember, those "idiots" as they were called...get up in the middle of the night and drive on bad roads to save someone's life, while risking their own in the process. It could be your life that they save some day!

I've never heard anyone use "great fire department and bar" in the same sentence before.

Reading above I think ResQ_20 and RescueMe were pretty accurate. The event was tragic yet a grim reminder of how quickly things can happen.

If anyone wants to bitch about the current officers at 114 or provide the low-down details about the club start another thread...leave the departed kid & his street sign.

The Farmer was not in anyway Related to the family and never will be. Most of the family could not even look at that man for years. He did not even know he hit a car until he got off of the tractor.

I have many family members and friends that get up all hours of the night to come out and save people. If you do not like any VFD then I hope you stay safe and never need one.
