LAFD Photo Caption Contest

Tuesday, September 12, 2006 |

Click to enlarge...First the facts:

A Los Angeles Firefighter is seen safely bringing a motorized scooter to a grateful resident forced to abandon the device when escaping a recent high rise condominium fire.

Note: pushing or pulling these devices is not desirable, and operating them from a non-seated position is unsafe.


...and kudos to our LAFD Brother for doing exactly what it takes to bring peace of mind - and a smile to the face of (more than?) one Los Angeles resident.

Do you have a work-safe caption to offer?

The new Fire Chief gets a lot of flack for always being last on the scene.

Sean Wuan Demarco said...

oh no the chief is going to kick my butt when he finds out I forgot to install the new fire supression systems on this green collars touring campfire fighting device!

I just wish they had figured out a way to carry an extinguisher on this thing. I don't like the way they told me to put out the fire....

Do you really wanna' know where all the gear is stored?

Chris Maxwell said...

I knew the Chief wanted to increase fire protection in Senior Citizen Retirement Communities, but to station me in one on this, you gotta' be kidding?

When they said "Check for spot fires... you can use the hover round", I thought they meant the helicopter...

So much for the "prestige" of being a Fireman. I sure hope those chicks didn't get a good look at my face...

LAFD becomes fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act

Humor One said...

As this rookie salutes, he's glad LAFD, followed in the footsteps of LAPD, in lowering their standards for becoming a firefighter.

PS Please take this in the humor it was intended.

Every once in a while, an old timer from 14's likes to come over and work sod at 82's. Ride em cowboy!!!

Evan Platt said...

Sheesh, they're putting our rehab further and further from the fire, but at least now we don't have to walk to rehab anymore.

It used to be said about firefighters that chicks dig you no matter where you sit...I don't think that's the case anymore!

Don't forget to pull off to the side and stop your vehicle when you are on the phone.
