  • Everyone Knows That...

    OK. This topic is stolen from another thread, but how about those myths falsehoods and lies we all know so much. What are some of your favorites?

    Here's one of mine, one of the guys at a local FD is spreading this one...

    "If you don't put it out with the first 250 gallons, it's going to the ground."

    Okay, I've said it before, but it's worth repeating. What's the definition of CHAOS ?

        My personal favorite is:

        All fires go out eventually!

        S. Cook I heard that as 500 gallons, but who's counting!

            "Oh my gosh, the structure is one fourth involved. We had better use the 1 1/2" pre-connect so we can save water" I just can't get some people to accept that you will use less water by blitzing with higher GPM. (sigh)

                      After pulling up on the scene of a call and having to maneuver around an erronously parked Chief's car the driver got out of the engine and asked what the hell the Chief was thinking parking in front of the building??
                      Chief: I needed a good vantage point to run the call.
                      Driver:WHY DID YOU PARK IN FRONT OF EVERYTHING?? DO YOU CARRY 1000 GALLONS OF WATER AND LADDERS IN THAT f***ING EXPLORER??
                      Now move that thing before the truck pushes you down the block!

                            Some of the guys at our station are always joking around with the "a LOT was saved" line after a structure.
