Where bad choices make good stories
My dad was on our small town's volunteer fire department for over 25 years. He told me that they were at a barn fire once, and the farmer told them, " I will buy the beer if you run out of water". My dad had the nozzle in hand, and immediately shut it down, and said, "We just ran out of water". Life was a different thing back then. Much more relaxed and enjoyable. And the little town FD had a faster on scene time than almost all of the other Departments in the county with many of them having staffed fire houses. One man worked right next to the firehouse, and others just responded to the fire from wherever they were at, in private vehicles. They had more grass fires in the spring of the year than just about any other type of fire that they responded to. Now with things being the way that they are, instead of basically self training, by those on the department who worked in the medical rescue field and police officers, they are trained according to state standards by professional trainers. No doubt they are much better suited for all of the possible things that could happen.
