    I like the idea of the "rollers" at about 8:05 to clear water out of the hose lengths as they're placed back on the apparatus bed. Looks like that concept would be easy enough to incorporate on engines to make life easier for members taking up. Give it a couple of years and it'll be on all the...

    Ponder this....

    For my part, I think it's disgraceful that the term "manhole" wasn't renamed as "personhole" decades ago. And why do FDNY and Con Ed continue to refer to "manhole fires" in this enlightened age? Why has the Master Lock Company not yet been forced to join the New Age? Why have all books and...

    Thanks for posting this, Chief. Flag Day should be a national holiday and it's a disgrace that so few people even know that such an observance exists.
