  1. Might be a dumb question but wouldn’t it be better/safer for them to have a different method of honking so they don’t have to take their hand off the wheel when they haul balls like that?

  2. I clicked on this without reading the title and I thought this was a bus driver. I thought they were pulling that string that signals to the driver that you want to get off at the next stop and this was some country that allowed public buses to ignore all traffic laws just to get people to their destination on time.

  3. For anyone down the Charleston, SC way, the [North Charleston Fire Museum has an exhibit](https://youtu.be/T5ECozeypSg?t=161) where you can experience a ride along complete with lights, sirens, and the “ride” rumbles and moves to give you the feeling of being in the actual fire truck!

  4. That’s crazy, i drive here every day! Good job Rotterdam firefighters!!

    Edit: Where I say ‘drive’ I actually mean stand still in traffic and enjoy the views.

  5. I can’t remember what it’s called but it’s kinda cool that they have the right to push cars out of their way with the truck. Even other first responders cars. If someone could provide that video I’d greatly appreciate it.

  6. My fire department used this video as a “how not to drive to a call” during our driver training. I get that there is a lot of traffic but that is dangerous on so many levels. People don’t expect you to be driving the wrong way on the street and people do unexpected things in those situations. They are so lucky they didn’t crash into anyone or cause any crashes as a result of their driving.

  7. My daddy’s a lifelong firefighter. I asked him recently what he liked about it the most and without hesitation he said “I know how to fight fires, how to command an incident, CPR…but I always thought I was the best at driving.” ❤️

  8. If anyone ever gets a chance to do a ride a long with police or fire, do it. I did a few years back with fire and part of the experience was this and the rest was treating people who were over dosing on meth and heroine. It really opened my eyes.

    The firefighters are good people often performing medical aid on patients before ambulances arrives.

    We just lost two of these brave guys in Porterville, CA due to two 13-year old arsonists.
