ok, I see some posts in this thread have been edited since my last visit.
Joking about blowing up the Q was not the problem, we are joking about it ourselves at our station. The issue is false information was being posted about the videos, and users were basing opinions on that false information. The line was crossed when the crew was called a bunch of ***'s.
The accusations that 11-10 had if "floored" are false, when I listen to the video I hear the jake brake most of the time, hardly "flooring it". I suggest turning up your bass or buy new speakers.
The accusations of tailgating, again, obviously not true.
To EngCo29, apology accepted, as far as we are concerned this issue is closed.
Now some backround about this incident:
Engine 11-10 was responding from a parade in a neighboring town, the OIC was in the process of gearing up, donning the pack, operating the radios, operating the sirens, all at the same time. The crew was gearing up and donning also.
Incident was paged as a building fire with possible entrapment, Chief arrived on scene with heavy fire showing and upgraded to second alarm.
Screaming could be heard coming from the second floor, Chief ordered the first in truck company for search and rescue operations. Chief request a third alarm.
In the video, the engine in front was turning towards the incident and hitting the plug on Side D, Engine 11-10's assignment was to hit a hydrant on Side C. This was best accomplished by traveling an additional 2 blocks before making the turn.
The operator of 11-10 was in complete control, knew exactly were he was going, and was not driving recklessly.
Listen to the radio traffic, you can here the truck company on the interior with search and rescue, at this point, no water supplies have been established, heavy fire was showing, and three tennants were unaccounted for.
In the end, a total of six alarms were transmitted. One tennant suffered burns and was transported, all other occupants were eventually accounted for. Thank god there were no fatalities.
-- Be safe everyone

Thanks for the extra info Hopefireco.
Don't sweat the armchair QB'ing, it happens all the time. Next someone is bound to comment on gearing up while responding, but we'll wait to cross that bridge.
Most of us are just genuinely intersted in how the incident played out. When you don't get the runs, you have to learn by studying others. Sounds like a good run with a good outcome.Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!
