I agree with John also there are no great firefighting movies. Ladder 49 when they send in the RIT team to rescue Jack he says over the radio its not worth is and they pull out everyone. In real life that would not be happening. Backdraft they don`t wear there air packs. Fireproof isn`t really firefighting more about love but still not a bad movie. I never seen The Towering Inferno but I should try to find it and watch it.
Read somewhere awhile ago that in backdraft they didnt wear masks because you wouldnt be able to understand what they were saying. Ok most people on this site would have no trouble inderstanding it but it was released for the general public to view. My dad was disappointed by backdraft because he thought it would be a training film!
Best firefighter movie: Towering Inferno
Best EMS movie: Mother, Juggs and Speed. How can you go wrong with bill cosby carrying around a 6 pack all the time
