    he should be reprimanded for his cavalier disregard for safety. Using a civilian ladder, no PPE, improper ladder selection, standing on the top rung, the safe thing to do would have been to stay across the street and cower.

    It's OK! Some do it because they actually care about people and some just like the free T-shirts!

    Good job! I know if I (or 99.99% of REAL Firefighters) were in the same situation, I would do the same.

    Well LA would have watched it burn. Actually, no he wouldn't have even done that. He would have walked the other way. If he was watching it burn, he might have to give a statement which is risking a paper cut.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    So... knowing your track record from past postings... ladies and gentlemen, Brothers and Sisters... draw your own conclusions... we could set a Guinness world record for agreement on a forum topic!
