    Default Just passing through...Very lucky.

    There is a certain skill set to urban driving that these folks learned the hard way.

    Glad everyone is ok, but this should have never happened.

    "Water truck?"
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

    Just about all intersection accidents involving fire apparatus never should happen.

    That is just plain dumb... no intersection accidents, FD or civilian, should happen. Yet we have a job.

    We have one tender in our fleet, policy is that it never runs code 3. 3000 gallons of water, even baffled, is too much weight to be throwing around. Add to that we are a city with hydrants every few hundred feet, with few areas of open country, our drivers are used to engines and trucks, that tender when needed is a totally different animal.

    Glad all are OK.
