    I dont want to sound rude here, but i think your being a little harsh for having so little information. I see some problems with the videos, yes they run a few calls a little fast, tankers really shouldent be going all that fast, although the poster provides relatively little information on actual incidents, you have no knowledge of why they are responding in such a manner. Why did they send 4 units to a "tree fire" who knows, maybe tree fire means forest fire? sitting here judging an entire dept talking bad about them is easy when we dont know even half of the story. And im sure that no else makes mistakes, or get heated up when bad calls come in. i just think people should do a little more investigating before we judge people and write them off.

    You are right here, hell the tree might have been inside a living room at a Albino Crippled Children's Refugee from War Torn Darfur Hospital. But the info posted failed to describe that. Man I feel like an ahole now, all those pale little wheelchair bound refugees getting burned up.

    I have not written anybody off. I could care less about people running to the station, I remember my volly days, if you didn't get first onto the rig, you got left behind.

    But watching several videos, I have concluded that they blow two stop signs within a couple hundred yards of their house, the first is a RR crossing, cool with that, you should be able to tell if a train is coming, and second one is a intersection where crossing traffic does not have a stop sign, the apparatus do, and I count 7 videos where 8 apparatus blow this stop sign, in one their tanker comes within feet of hitting a black pick up truck in the snow. And there is one where their brush truck blows by a person on a motorized wheelchair coming down the road... them poor Albino Crippled Refugees, God I fell like an ahole.

    Just remember that the person filming and posting the videos is NOT a member of the department, and is not driving the trucks.

    Question 6 Alarm Field Fire

    One of the videos attached to the second set of videos is labled "6 Alarm Field Fire"
    WTF is a "6 Alarm Field Fire"? Does that mean every brush rig in THREE states responds?
    Does that mean Yellowstone is on fire? While these guys are all well intended, they seem to be a little over exuberant.

    It is a whopping 10 acres!

    About a 88 seconds in, you see the classic riding in the back pose.

    I imagine you can find a lot on Youtube of what not to do, if someone were so inclined and
    had a LOT of spare time.

    10 acres. That would get me laughed at if I called for help around here on that!

    It is one of those things that SERVES NO PURPOSE yet can easily have negative results.
    I dont know, during some of the large earthquakes we have had in the past, RUNNING SERVED EVERY PURPOSE.......

    Yes we're aware that you hate volunteers for some reason, probably because you think you're hot $hit.

    Though based on your posting history here on FH.com, I'm having a hard time figuring something out. Are you even a firefighter? All 156 posts you have are about taking tests and putting in applications. None about actually being a firefighter yet. Which leads me to believe you are nothing more than a jealous wannabe that isn't.

    As well as career members of larger fire departments too.

    yeah, I should have qualified - there are a couple of times when running is warranted,
    like getting the heck OUT of dodge...
