In a time when it appears that some in the fire service can no longer think for themselves without having attended the latest leadership seminar, we leave it to the backstep firefighters to remind everyone that the job still gets done, without having to text each other or use a powerpoint projector.
Jacksonville (FL) firefighters were faced with a junkyard fire on 18 February that was extending out of control and beyond their water supply capabilities. When looking at Plan A, B, C and so forth, the ingenuitive members came up with a creative plan…
“Heavy equipment operators were quickly placed into action, digging a large hole. Firefighters proceeded to fill the hole with water, creating a small reservoir.”
Read how they did it at “Jacksonville Fire Fighters Get Creative at Junkyard Fire” in Firehouse.com’s Photo Stories.
Nice work Jacksonville.
