    DAILY NEWS.....A fire engine and a police truck rushing to separate emergencies collided in Queens yesterday, injuring five firefighters and two cops, police and fire officials said.

    We don't let our cops have anything bigger than a Crown Vic, so they always yield for us. On a serious note, our best wishes for a speedy recovery to all involved in this incident. This is one of those examples of what can go wrong despite all the safety training that we get. When organizations who use lights and sirens to go places do so on different radio channels, then there is always the chance of something like this happening. We got a call for an auto accident a while back, and as we responded to the location given, we encountered a high speed police chase COMING AT US HEADON. The Ambulance was leading, and the crew recognized what was happening and notified the rest of us to get off the road, which prevented an accident, as I see it. DooDoo happens, as the saying goes, and we need to be alert at all times. For anyone who's waiting for a Anti-ESU thread, this ain't it. Stay Safe....

    LMAO!!! I hope that they all get back to duty soon. I thought for a suicidal person both fire and police go or does fire go to clean up the mess?
