KublaiKhan: I've never had to do this, but here's a similar situation that I had.We had a kitchen fire at the local grocery store, and had a few cars parked in the fire lane with their hazards on. "I'll move if there's ever something!" is the usual thing we hear from that. We got on scene, lay down supply line, and block in three vehicles. No window breaking or anything, but they weren't going anywhere for an hour or two. Then, one of the owners comes up and asks, "Hey, can you move that truck? I'm running late." I thought about turning the deck gun on him.We've gotten that question when blocking in vehicles with the ambulance, too. I'm usually pretty patient with them and will move because they were parked legally, but sometimes things require more attention (like when the guy asked me to move while I was doing CPR on someone.Oh, and don't even get me started on people not pulling to the right for our rigs./I'm not bitter
tinyarena: Not to be "That Guy" or anything but, if they had to pick the car up to move it, why didn't they move it out of the way in the first place?I guess I don't understand their manly ways...
Mr. Right: FTA: This morning, the BMW is no longer is parked next to the hydrant.And I'll bet someone has learned a valuable lesson they'll be able to use for the rest of their life.
jbrooks544: Yeah, that's what I am, an internet tough guy. It is just impossible and unimaginable that I might possibly be correct, or that our sainted firefighters could ever do wrong.
jbrooks544: Lachwen: jbrooks544:I call BULLSHIAT. If their real priority was getting water quickly then they would have run the hose under the car. Easier, faster, better angle to the hose.Tell me again how under the car would be a "better angle."The photo doesn't look conclusive. From what I see, the bottom of the car looks closer to the outlet than the window sill. Also, the window is off to the side, whereas the underside route wouldn't require an up angle, then another turn to go through the car. I'm sure you are right though, it is impossible that they went out of their way to just be dick bags, or because they saw it in done crappy movie.
Captain Horatio Mindblower: Firefighters knowingly risk their lives every day to save people they don't even know. These ones also trashed a BMW. Why no hero tag?
GarbageDay: Of course it was a BMW. German-made vehicles scream "A farking prick drives this car."/Including Volkswagen, but to a lesser degree
Please let it be a BMW, oh pleeeze...*clicks*
muwaryer: I bet they just love doing that.
