I have nothing against the PD but I think they should only be on a fire scene for crowd and traffic control. We don't pull people over or respond on burgler alarms and they have no business going into a fire. They risk becoming a victim when there may not have been any to begin with.

Call for stranded cow in field. It was during a heavy rain storm when one cow decided to go her own direction and not fallow the others and got herself stranded on an "island". We used our zodiak to get there. Took 6 people to get her to a shallow area where she was put into the bucket of a front-end-loader and carried out. All ended well. There was no way I was gonna miss this call. :) Good water trainig though.
