    I really don’t see the problem with their action. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve grabbed an idling squad car to do a traffic stop or a quick run to a Dunkin’ Donuts.

    Wackers of a high order. Maybe even Super Wackers.

    Dorks like this give all volunteer firefighters a bad name...If they were on my FD I would be waiting for their not so triumphant return home to tell them they are huge flaming dumb a z zes and to thank them for making our department look stupid to the entire world.

    It's a dirty job, but not dirty enough for Mike Rowe to do it!

    Here's hoping they are forced to turn in their gear upon their return to Maryland.

    Been through that tunnel at least a dozen times. Unless I happened to be driving through and witnessed the initial beginnings of the fire, I would'nt even attempt to try and go it a tunnel like that. That's something you'd definitely have to preplan and coordinate, you're basically in a horizontal chimney. And taking someone else's vehicle?? Insane.
