When Will They Learn What We Already Know About Firefighting?

This isn’t a new video, it was uploaded in 2009. The lesson is real, the emotions are real, and the issue is still debated….Staffing.

Watch this video on a couple of fires. The story from Ipswich really hits home. Firefighter Rick Smith tells the story of pulling up to a fire by himself on a half million dollar fire truck that seats 6. 3 people died. I can’t even imagine what that was like. I don’t want to experience it. I don’t want others to experience it…and the public deserves better.

When will the beancounters understand?

The video is from GreatAmericans.com.
