    Cause of the fire-"Overheated combustables."

    Car fire "Car-B-Q"

    We don't call them homeless-- we call them "Outdoorsmen"

    In Colorado Springs we have a large homeless population. In the winter we call the homeless "Bum-sicles".

    "And your point is?"

    "And you called 911 for what, again?"

    "Firefighter or Comedian, Firefighter or Comedian, have you decided yet??"

    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"

    "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,
    Nik

    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..."

    (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!!

    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)

    "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.

    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
