Not a lot you can do when mutual aid from 20 miles away is working your "exposure" fires 6 blocks away from the building of origin.....

My buddy out here at school is ****ed. He is from a department that went mutual aid - and he's stuck out here at school in Oklahoma.
He is angry - because he always misses the "big ones" because of school.Marc

You might have "the big one" if every fire department in the entire state is on scene in your town... and your still calling mutual aid from CT and MA.Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
