    ok, i think i'm missing something. why was the engine out of service? yes, it was out of the station, couldn't the crew grab their clothes, put on their turn out gear, and respond? last i checked, engine companies were not chained to station, and were allowed to drive around for certain activities.

    Stripping the City of Services?

    The "bare" facts of the matter

    Retirement party gag put fire engine out of service twice
    jaccft2
    JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - A firefighter has filed a complaint after
    his station had to take a fire engine out of service because a
    co-worker volunteered for a faux strip tease gag at a June
    retirement party.
    Firefighter Curtis James said shutting down the engine because
    of a lack of staff could put lives at risk. He recently filed a
    complaint with the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health
    Administration.
    At least five city employees participated in the strip act at a
    retirement party for a female co-worker. The male dancers wore
    masks and stripped to their boxers and boots, said Linda Ramsey,
    secretary to Fire Chief Ken Lay.
    A city e-mail was sent out requesting volunteers for the gag.
    The No. 43 fire engine that James usually drives at Station No.
    4 was parked twice, once so the firefighter involved in the gag
    could meet with the party's planner, and again the day of the
    party.
    Lay said he didn't feel anyone's life was in danger and is upset
    James went over his head by calling TOSHA before speaking with him.
    Jackson Mayor Charles Farmer sent an e-mail to all city
    employees saying retirement parties are no longer allowed while
    employees are working.
