        Now I just really want to know the story behind Lutan's picture of the Etobicoke Aerial accident.

        How the hell do you do that? First day with the new truck??

            That's an easy one mcaldwell- the driver had just proposed to his girlfriend at a local restaurant and she accepted!

            He was on such a high, that he forgot that the new truck is parked out the back of the station, not in the bays!

              As always...there is more to these stories that we originally are priveledged to. In this case...we asked and we got an answer. And it was a good one!

              Thanks Brian...Stay with us and provide some input from the West Coast of our beautiful country.

              On a final note...The use of Fire Department apparatus in "customer service" type situations is prevalent in some departments. I recently attended a seminar on "customer service" taught by a nationally recognized Fire Chief. Some of the stories and lenghts that his department goes to to provide the utmost in "customer service" will boggle your mind. It works though!

                Thanks for your kind words and allowing me to offer some insight.

                While I would love to participate here on a regular basis, I am regretfully already overcommitted in other forums, such as the immensely popular usenet newsgroup: alt.firefighters

                If you happen to have a question for me, or there is an LAFD specific matter in this or another forum you wish to make me aware of, please feel free to contact me in that usenet newsgroup.

                Fraternally Yours in Safety and Service,

                      The guys decided on using the Tower to perform the proposal after the romantic lakeside proposal went horribly wrong when they discovered the truck wouldnt fit into the row boat at the same time as the lovers....

                          Wow, and everyone lived happily ever after. I saw the life and death of debate by reading this thread front to back. I have to say, though, you guys know how to drag out some extraordinary pictures...

                            What if a crew, in between runs, built a house that they could sell. Would that be considered "improper use of City equipment"?

                              No PA, that would be a training exercise .

                              Many moons ago, my volunteer department had similar training sessions. They conducted "water relay drills" (filling swimming pools) and "limited flow hose operations" (washing personal vehicles with the station's unmetered garden hose and the department's soap). It is very easy to cross over from cute to criminal. The story you posted was clearly VERY over the line. Depending on the state's ethics laws, those guys could be in real trouble.
