    Well, better than one fire company in Haverford Township, PA, which was ordered closed by the township. All, because the fire company board refused to relieve a volunteer lieutenant of duty, due to his activities with the Proud Boys.

    Or the Leedom Estates fire department, which was infamous at one point for passing the fire that they were responding to – multiple times in several instances.

    I note that it is a volunteer fire department which isn’t on the whole too busy (perhaps 80 calls/year judging by the website info while my local fire department has closer to 8000 calls/year) so working on a video helps bind them together.

    Looking around I found some of Morris’s retired vehicles including a 1920s model

    My local department’s recently retired trucks tend to go to our sister city of Oaxaca (California state law requires that equipment be fairly modern but recently retired equipment is still a vast improvement over what Oaxaca could normally afford).

    Marks for effort, clearly. But don’t fire brigades employ anyone with a passing knowledge of scansion anymore? What is the world coming to?!

    That was sweet video. The reaction though…

    Pew Dee Pie !?! Really? I’m gobsmacked that’s where some folks minds went to after seeing this. Then a humblebrag followed by a Lit major showing off their chops. Man, Trump has done a number on us.

    Traffic seems light. Their truck never encounters another vehicle in the entire video.

    Multiple trucks, many talented and apparently dedicated fire fighters. The proof is likely in their response to emergencies. They are more correctly termed the Emergency Response Department since their actions go far beyond simply handling structure fires. Seems that the community has supported them with good equipment, and they maintain it with professional care. Good on them!
