    Default Good Idea to slow down in bad weather....unlike

    KCFD responded to a school bus into a pole because of the ice we are getting this morning, they became part of the problem. They couldn't stop and hit the bus. There were two students injured, unkown if they were injured before or when the engine struck them.

    Oh, I'm pretty sure their parents' lawyers already know for a fact that those students were perfectly fine until that fire engine showed up.

    i hate to see this. but i cannot stress enough the importance of driving safe. just because there are lights flashing, sirens going, and a loud airhorn going off; does not mean to drive like you're in a nascar race. these trucks are not equipped for fast take-off and fast braking....especially on ice!!!! yall be careful.

    wow jumping on the guys already? At least let them tow the truck before you start casting stones. I can see this as a reminder to be careful, but don't throw the guys under the bus just yet.
