the only truck in house that has a radio in it is or brush truck and the chief only lets us use it on the way home from fires or at parades we even use it to play christmas music when we take santa around or coverage area.
While responding? I assume this is for personal vehicle response only? We do not have radios except for in our tankers and they are never turned on. Radio communication is much more important for updates on the way.
I dont listen to the radio on the way, i do however sing while im inside fighting the fire, helps me conserve air better and helps me keep a cool head. A few ones I like to sing are "We didnt start the fire" lol "The Fireman" and "Cheeseburger in Paradise"
