For the Forum Firefighters!
My shift had a fire this morning, With a Save! The victim got tanked up and decided to burn her house down. Police Officers who arrived on scene first, tried to get her to come out and she refused using terms that would get me banned. One Firefighter from Truck 3 and a Firefighter from Engine 3 managed to drag her out from under the table she was holding onto, about the same time as she got a good dose of smoke. The smoke having changed her opinion about dying in her house, she then relented, (passed out), allowing them to go out a window on a ladder placed by Truck 2, (my company). Transported to the hospital by the Band-Aid bandits, she has survived to no doubt, try to burn herself up again. And no, I didn't get in on the fun, I was stuck on RIT. :cuss: The other high point of the morning, her pit bull that had been played with and petted by most of the firefighters on scene, bit the first Police officer to get near him. :jester:
