Dear Mr. Really

Sir…. The fire department is the one you call if you or the police departments have no idea how to solve a problem. Everything from a car in the river, to a fuel spilled on the street, to a local warehouse on fire with chemicals that if released will annihilate the community in which you live. The underpaid professional firefighters in your area are trained to mitigate all kinds of emergencies. They are specialized in all forms of rescue and fire extinguishment techniques. You should take the time to realize that when you have an emergency…. And you will… a professional firefighter will be there with the skill and experience it takes to save the lives of yourself or your loved ones. Don’t forget that on your worst day with a problem you are not capable of solving on your own (trapped in a burning building, in a terrible car accident trapped, to the heart attack you may have at 4 in the morning) the fire department will be there. Then and only then will you realize how stupid the comment you made was. Have a great day and be aware that the police that you love and respect will not be able to push the dashboard off of your entrapped legs, stop you’re bleeding, begin advanced life support and transport you to the appropriate health care facility. That’s the firefighter’s job… NOW pay them a livable wage and thank them for serving selflessly the next time you run into one.
