    We got called out on a car fire earlier this week. The vehicle was abandoned, and appeared to an insurance job. The deputy on scene was talking to us while we waited for the wrecker, and said, "You guys are my heroes. You kick in someones door, and they bring you cookies and say thank you. I kick in someones door, and they get ****ed off at me."

    A 14 year old girl smoked some potpourri and thought she was dying.

    Sounds hysterical.

    Another thing we used to do to any of the new recruits or ff's that transferred into the station was that the first time their wife of girlfriend visited the station, one firefighter would after being introduced, he'd look at the new guy incredulously and ask "That's your wife? (or GF) That's your WIFE? Then when they nodded yes, he'd respond; "SHE'S NOT FAT!!" A few guys got hit pretty hard by their wives with that one.

    Happened this morning....

    Called out to go on scene for a Truck not wanting to start. Had to finish up what I was doing, so it took me about 30 minutes to get there. Talked to the driver and Officer, and they said they'd been there awhile doing nothing and shut the rig down for about an hour. Went to start it, nada, not even clicks. Asked if they kicked the front tire, and obviously, the answer was "no". So laughing, I went over and kicked the front tire, jumped in, and started the rig. Silence.... except for a running truck.

    Me?? I just turned my head and smiled. Shut it down, and restarted it. Didn't find anything wrong, and they made a few more runs. Beats me what happened. But the looks and comments were priceless.

    Thought it was so good, I needed to post it twice. Then, thought better of it.

    We put a Cummins in our last Seagrave. Best thing we ever did!

    I guess no one here's old enough to remember the basic rule on 903s. After starting one in the morning, DO NOT shut it off until you're done for the day.

    WTF would ANYBODY want one of those Smoking,shaking, fallapart POS for? If it isn't an 855+ cube inline 6 it ISN'T in our apparatus. We had one of those Fooking 903's in a Michigan loader we had. Miserable starting, ugly, nasty powerplant. Comparable to the Intermationals DV550's that ran on whatever amount of cylinders they wanted to on that particular day. T.C.
