    I definitely would agree with that glad no one tried to enter that hell, we got hit with alot of wind here, blew down tress down Rt180 all over the road the department was out for hours clearing up.

    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.....

    And losing........

    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.

    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.
