A Nickel(back)’s Worth of Firefighting

A light post for your Friday. Enjoy, or pick it apart.


Personally, I’m not a big fan of the whole music/firefighting video genre, but in this case this one was well done.

“Onboard camera. SDFD Truck 1 and Truck 11 forcing entry, completing primary search and assisting Engine 1 advance 2 1/2″ attack lines. Fire was knocked down with no damage to either adjacent business.”

The problems are many, but they perpetuate and increase with every new class of recruits that are poisoned with the idea that anyone who feels unsafe has a responsibility to act and stop whatever is going on.
