    Post Chase Drivers

    OK, It may be becouse I'm from a little Federal Department, But what the heck is a chase driver? I've seen them on "The Bravest" in Frisco and New York. Are they just extra personell that don't fit on the truck with extra equipment?

    Thanks for any info.

    You know I have seen the same thing. I assumed that they were personnel for the show so they could see the vehicles during the response. I don't know if they are used for any other purpose. I have seen them on each episode that I've watched.

    Maybe I was wrong. Anyone know any different?

    I`ve always figured they`re some kind of chief. Never heard or, or seen one before "The Bravest"

    Chase cars carry extra cameramen around for the Bravest, driven by firefighters/officers on OT.

    They don't serve any other purpose and don't exist otherwise.

    I posted the same question. The chase driver is for displaced crew, extra cameramen, that sort of thing.

    A chase driver usually blaocks traffic at intersections and stuff. And i guess for the bravest purpose's they have a camra man with them.
