    • Well if they were responding to a call it’s easy. You see firefighters are like dogs when food is in front of them. All they see and know is food. Same with firefighters when the tones drop. They freak out and only see and know there is a call. The reason I know this I’ve been one for 20 years. They can’t just remain calm. They have to get all excited. Pisses me off

      • William. You’re an idiot to post something like that, and I’m ashamed to be a FF/AEMT and serve with someone that posts that. You weren’t there, you have no idea what happened. Stop being a jerk, but I have a feeling you’ve had plenty of practice at it and have it prefected.
