And some more about that rescue, with more pictures.

You can see how far forward the trailer went after it broke free. The comments are interesting.

Nice photos, but for the 4 members not wearing there full PPC . "

Definitely ruffled some feathers... I didn't have a problem with those guys working like that. Structural lids are heavy and bulky and can be more of a hindrance than a help.

One thing I liked was seeing a white-hat working! I used to work with an Ops Officer who was known to get in the back of the pumper with a plain helmet to go and lend a hand as a firie with the vols in one of his brigades.
