JohnCarter: Barfmaker: A million dollar piece of equipment and he uses it to rescue a kitten.That's Good Guy Bill for you.[www.baynews9.com image 676x533]Lord look at the size of that truck. Wonder what they are compensating for? Anyway, if the cat was only 25' up couldn't they have stood on the roof of that beast and gotten it?
Barfmaker: It's legit, any time you get a chance to haul out the equipment in a real-world scenario then all the guys get further training and familiarity in the safe use and deployment. Especially something that big and complicated. And since this scenario wouldn't be an emergency, you can stop and explain or demonstrate if one of the newer guys isn't sure.The ladder is often the least used piece of equipment too (at least around here), so they might look for reasons to get it moving.Bottom line though, these guys are cowboys and heroes, that's why they got into this business. So when the Captain gets a chance to get all heroic and in the local paper saving a kitten he's going to be all over that. Plus, he probably almost never gets to go up the ladder anymore, in a real emergency he'd be coordinating on the ground, not playing fireman.And you know that photo of him with the kitten will be blown up big and on display at his retirement party.

jiggitysmith: I ask any of you: Have you ever seen a cat skeleton in a tree? They eventually figure it out.That's because the world is full of good, kind people who will climb a tree and rescue the poor kitty before it turns to bones and dust.
