    Those community groups that are concerned with 'police misconduct' should bring this issue to the publics attention and argue that 'secret police radio transmissions' fly in the face of accountability and openness. I think that is a legit argument.

    London Fire Brigade 209Ft Tower Ladder

    It takes a bit extra time to put into service, but doubling the height is pretty impressive. May not be needed frequently, but when it is it could be a life saver! One more arrow in the LFB's quiver!!
