    I am kinda surprised they kept as cool as they did. I liked the comment over the PA "Maybe you shouldn't be driving a bus".

            I would have been LIVID.....

            Did anyone else catch the FF saying something about a fatal fire w/an 8 year old? ..... Hope that really DID make it to the MTA as a complaint!

                Yeah real funny, seeing how they were responding to a fire, hope nobody was in the building. I hope the mother friggin [email protected]$$ sumbeach bus driver gets fired.

                I sent in a complaint to MTA, though I don't live in NY, this is rediculous. I told them if I didn't get word back I'd file with the city themselves. Pretty sad when someone outside the city cares more than someone that works there.

                  Oh, don't get me wrong, I totally agree with you... When possible get out of the way, plain and simple but this jack off had nothing in front of him.

                    I think that was a buff bus...

                      I'm surprised non of the FF's tried pulling the driver out through the small window. What a dumbass.

                          Snow. Congested streets. And maybe some other circumstances that we know nothing about.

                          Not going to say anything except that we ask for the right of way, and there are times we don't get it.

                          Back to the culture of "we have to get there NOW".

                          We also don't know what they were running too. Based simply on the fact that the member who came up to the bus was not in SCBA, I would suspect it was not a fire (or would hope it wasn't a fire). So how critical was it that they got there quickly?

                          Sorry, but we have no idea of what was going on here beyond what we saw on the sceren.

                          Get on the radio. Tell dispatch and other companies you will be delayed. It happens.

                          Train to fight the fires you fight.

                            Oh schit, here we go again, you and your effin stupid @$$ crap. Look at the video, there was no traffic in front of the idiot driving the bus. There was no congestion either. The firefighter was even showing the moron where he could put his bus to get the hell out of the way. Of course God forbid you actually use any common sense whatsoever in your so called analysis of the situation. Do yuo disagree just tp **** people off? I mean come on, the video is obvius, there's not much there to leave a person guessing, except a total moron that is.

                              That's because the culture of " we will get there later " hasn't worked out as well.
                              We do not rise to the occasion. We fall back to our level of training.
