    Some clever things I'v heard.

    "Yellow smoke, she's a gonner!"

    "MORE PRESSURE"

    "I only parked here for a second!"

    "Don't bother with the foam, keep fillin her with water, she'll sink and that'll put her out"

    "Coat of paint, couple of seats and four new tires and your car will be just like new"

    "Hydrant??"

      Just a couple of quick ones---
      "Is that poop I smell?"---after one of the guys hit the hydrant and had dog crap all over his boots

      "When in doubt run out, but don't scream, it looks bad on the local news." One of the trainers favorites

        "GOD DAMNIT"
        said by my explorer chief after we were canceled just as we pulled onto the scene of a role over.

        "So ****, Did you learn anything today?"
        "Like what *****"
        "CLOSE THE F*CKING DOORS!!!!"
        -Said after another FF left one of E-1's Doors open from getting a saw, Soon after that we were Called for a radio box activtion, when we returned E-1 was down the street with its door on the bay floor.

          reporter: can you tell me what happen?
          firefighter: yeah, a fire.
          Reporter: what was burning?
          FF: the building on the ground behind me.
          RE: what was it like?
          FF: hot
          RE: hot? what else?
          FF well then it got real hot, then real smokey, Then there was water everywhere.
          RE: Do you know how it started?
          FF: I think something got to hot.
          You got to have fun with the press. Know matter how well you explain something to them they STILL always miss quote and mix up the story.

            A recent tone in the middle of the night, I got on scene and when Chief arrived I just had to ask with a stupid look on my face......"Ummmmmmm Chief, why is there a couch on fire in the middle of the road?" Strange things happen I guess. Stay Safe....Jay

              "Chief to County, Improper cooking, recall the company." in responce to most of our alarm calls.
              "Didn't we have hose on the back of this truck?"
              "Oh boy, time to call the red light roach coach" When we pull up to a big fire, we end up calling the local emergancy food truck.

                Fire Ma'am there's no fire around here.... We all thought we would just get up in the middle of the night get dressed in all this heavy equipment and come out here to stand around in 25 degree weather....

                Chief.... Is your car supposed to be smoking like that???

                Lefty Loosy....Righty Tighty....( I needed this one day... I soaked my shift captain with 700 gallons of water after he disconnected a charged 5 inch off of the engine at a structure fire)

                  Very few things burn under water
                  All fires eventually go out

                    (In the bunkroom)
                    "You always gotta check your bunk before you jump in. You never know what somebody might have done to it while you were out," ___ said to me, as I was switching my sleeping gear to another bunk, having found the supports "mysteriously" having vanished.
                    **WHAM!** came the sound as he sat down on his bunk, only to fall through to the floor, *HIS* slats having vanished also!
                    --
                    Or...
                    ___ coming down the walk from the "Investigation of an odor" call. "Cap, better call the Sheriff's office. We have a DOA inside."
                    "How do you know they're dead? Are you a doctor? You can't pronounce them dead" as he pushes past through the door.
                    Followed shortly by the sound of throwing up from the bushes....
                    DOHHH!!

                      Jmatteau- perhaps you should ride with a company who is first due on a college campus...Couch fires galore!!!

                      Couple personal favs:

                      "..Well, then, you shouldn't have parked in front of the hydrant.."

                      "...Probie, when I said hit the hydrant, (points to big dent in front bumper and hydrant in middle of street) I didnt mean HIT the hydrant..."

                      "...You've got a what? Stuck WHERE???!!!..."

                      "Engine 161 to Truro Fire, what's the house # again?"...pause..."Truro Fire to Engine 161, it's the one that's on fire..."
                      My opinions only.

                          "What part of emergency do you *not* understand??"

                          (what we *wanted* to say to the lady who stood out in the middle of the road, stopped our truck, and then asked us if we could give her directions to the main road.)

                          "You picked up the chock, didn't you?"
                          "Oh. That huge bump we just had?"

                          stay safe,

                              Lt:"where is my ax?"
                              me:"dont know"
                              CF:"eh.......whatever your name is, why is there an ax stuck in your scba?"
                              lesson: if the Lt is too excited dont let him follow! And make your chief remember your name.
                              "dispatch we are in quarters, could you fax us our times?"-usually done several times as they forget to send them.
                              "This is a cooking fire?" with flames over 50' high, nuff said
                              "we need the saw, the ax wont work"

                                "And your point is?"

                                "And you called 911 for what, again?"
