  • Apparatus for blocking on limited access roadways

    In the last few weeks, I have seen a number of photos showing emergency vehicles blocking the scene on expressways, highways or freeways. The photos have included everything from a utility truck to a ladder truck to a tanker or even a dedicated "highway blocker" vehicle with the water-filled safety barriers.

    What does your department send to block roadways and what are the pros and cons of one vehicle over the other.

    Thanks!

      Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

      "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


      Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.
