Nothing quite like...

Going the wrong way on the road, in a ladder truck, in the middle of the day. My Officer didn't really want to, but there was no choice!

Sitting in the jump seat at 0000 staring at the stars and watching the rear light spinning, wondering why you are running hot to a call when you know you will get released from before you even get there.

Drivin a pumper

Hopping the median, driving the wrong way down an 8 lane street, at 5pm in Houston

Q wound all the way up, horns blowing constant, and the look of terror from the faces in the cars going by.

Departments have different SOPs for such calls. With us, most times a fire officer will arrive quickly in his pov and slow everyone down. Or, dispatch will relate that a police officer on scene is reporting a false alarm, and a fire officer will radio one truck to respond with traffic, everyone else stay in quarters.

That is what usually happens here as well. Page was a dryer that smelled hot, no fire and no smoke. We were second due on that one. After the first company got there, we never heard back from them, which tells me nothing is going on.

racing the other ladder crew with their smaller faster truck, and watching them miss the turn, putting YOU first truck "on scene" and leaving THEM as "RIT".

...forcing through burgler bars and dead bolted doors, black smoke banked down to your knees, and locating the fire...only to realize the ENGINE GUYS didn't keep up, still lost in the dark.

Nasally intubating a seated pin-in through the driver's side window and the poor, just-helmeted-the-windshield bastard literally sucks the tube out of your fingers...
