If I want the local airport to bring their P15 ARFF to the gas tanker rollover on I80. No problem, DOT has no relevance. If I want to take my new 3000gal CAFS tanker pumper (46000lb rr) to anywhere in the state, DOT has no relevance . No problem. If I want to take my 80000lb 6x6 M911 tanker across the state on a mutual aid wildland call. No problem, DOT has no relevance. Same conditions as always, assess the terrain and conditons to determine if appropriate (and routing).

Our only restrictions are common sense. Please do not drive the 73,000lb truck over the little 5 ton bridge. Just like you said, assess terrain and conditions, alternate routes, and then determine if appropriate.We do not rise to the occasion. We fall back to our level of training.
