    I've seen this before. It has to be one of the most embarrassing things for these to guys to look back on and watch. I like early in where the guy sas he going to make a run for the truck. You hear the pumper in the background doing some sort of high idle engine test or something, cause that wasn't charging a line. I think they could have gotten that rig out if they had just gone in and brought it out first thing. You make a good point...How far do all these rigs need to park from the bldg?

    No, its videos like this that broaden the "well trained and organized vs poorly trained and organized" gap.

    Wow. I have seen some Charlie Foxtrot fire scenes before, but that may take the cake. That one guy needed to stop telling everyone he was going in to get the truck and just do it. Lots of yelling... Not much doing...

    The only comment that I will make is that diesel motors need "good air" to run just like a human being. The longer you wait to get the rigs out the less of a chance you will get them started.

    Seems to be a lot of confusion....must be a horrible thing to see your own firehouse on fire...doesnt seem to be any order....they all seem very unorganized and slow moving....as well as slow getting dressed. In training in my area we have to be geared up with a pack on and ready to go in under a minute 30 seconds...cant understand what is taking them so long to get lines stretched and ready to fight the fire...especially with aparatus outside.

    I think these guys forgot that the main part of firefighting.....is actually fighting fire. Almost makes me think they lit it themselves, cause they didnt seem to be doing to much to save anything. It was hilarious watching that guy in the beginning struggling so much to get his SCBA on when every other piece of PPE he had on was on wrong though. And the black guy that pulled the nozzle/crosslay from the engine a mile away, was he a member of that company or just some random guy???

    I actually thought the same thing when I watched it. and then when they did fight it, looked like all they pulled was one 1 1/2.

    I liked the guy running around with no bunker gear. And then he almost passed out as he was leaning against the car. The best has to be all the fire trucks were postitioned a block away.

    I did a search for National City and all I could find was one in CA? Does anyone else might know?

    Well there is no, VFD in National City, Ca, they are a full time dept. and East St. Louis is in Illinois, and a quick search on google maps reveals that there is an Unincorporated area just north of East Saint Louis named National City.

    You can clearly see East St. Louis rigs in the video, which tells me that it had to be somewhere near there. Of course, it seems that this fire was so embarrassing that National City doesn't even exist anymore.

    Okay, so only sort of. When Googling for National City, Illinois... I found where St. Claire County filed a petition to dissolve the Village of National City because a special census revealed its population to be 0. Oh, the things you find on the Internet.
