The greatest firehouse story ever told

…can not be told online or in print because you have to know three specific things:

  1. The angle of the 100′ articulated aerial ladder truck.
  2. The personality of the person on the end of the ladder with the net.
  3. The look on the face of the raccoon when he jumped.

I have not laughed like that in a long, long time.

And like all firehouse stories, it is 100% true.

  1. Aww come on HM, you can’t just give us that much and at least not try to tell the story!! This is just not right. At least give up some more of the details!!

  2. Come on … I want to hear this story. How many fire fighters did it take to rescue the raccoon?? Was the raccoon scared?? Who was more scared the raccoon or the fire fighter?? Did the raccoon get a new home, or did he continue living in the city??

    I am just a Dispatcher that sits in a dispatch centre forced to live vicariously through the crews I dispatch, and I like hearing hearing about things like this. :( Pretty Please with sugar and a cherry on top.
