I used to work for an ambulance company in Lebanon, and at that time they used to just have paid drivers on and relied on the vollies. I do not know about now if they have other paid guys on or not. The guy in the uniform was from EMS. The hospital is right down the street. if you watch closely you can see the sign as the engine passes it. I do agree with everyone about the civilians.

ok after watching this....its all nice and great the civilians were helping and everything in the first few moments of this footage...however it seems like there is no actual boundary to separate the fire fighters from the civilians...this is disturbing to me because of obvious reasons....i seen more of the guy with the white shirt and blue ball cap than what i did of the rest of the crews on scene....its not a good scenario if something happened on scene and civilians got hurt....try to explain that one

I watched this video and saw a Department that was not overly manned arriving on scene of a working structure. I wasn't sure if the man in the blue uniform was a firefighter or PD but what I saw was a town that the locals supported their FD and actually provided some assistance during the crucial first few minutes of the fire. Sure it would be nice to live and work in a city that has enough manpower to staff every fireground position but that just isn't so in todays world. I know that I have no problem when an able bodied citizen offers to drag hose or assist in carrying a ladder. Do we need to protect them and keep them safe? Sure we do but the tasks that they performed here in my opionion were well within the boundries of being safe.

<3 them arm chair firefighters. "But we have seen Backdraft". Dont get me wrong help is nice but I thought we were to protect the people, Crowd control? Oh wait it looks like the PD are pulling hose lines too.

So much for PPE.

Is that two civilians helping firefighters? And shouldnt there be a second firefighter up w/ the other on the roof?

I don't want to beat a dead horse but does any body else see a need for PPE
