Peter Bergeson Peter Bergeson Thursday, November 08, 2012 10:44:34 AM As if NY didn't have enough ugliness with the Hurricane there. One to the things we are always reminded of when responding to emergencies - and here all for a false alarm ; (.
Steve Jacobi Steve Jacobi Thursday, November 08, 2012 6:57:11 PM False alarm or not you still drive with caution and due regard for others and don't blow through stop signs. This could easily have ended in several fatalities to nonfirefighters if that had been a POV or school bus in that intersection instead of another big fire truck.

Steve Jacobi Steve Jacobi Friday, November 09, 2012 8:42:41 AM Does it make any difference if it is a false alarm? Having no regard for traffic rules and the safety of yourself and others does not make a difference whether it was a true emergency or a false alarm. The results are the same and often deadly.
