Huckleberries Online

CDAndid Camera -- Pet Peeve

This photo was taken about 11 a.m. this morning on 3rd St. just north of Locust Ave. in Coeur d'Alene. There were no flames or smoke, probably a medical call. Yet there were three firetrucks, a fire dept. SUV and an ambulance responding. Why do ladder trucks and fire trucks need to respond to all of these non-fire calls? When call statistics are compiled annually it makes it look like the fire department responds to far more actual fires than it does. And with the price of gas, it's fiscally irresponsible to continue this practice.
