Um, is that a #Fire #Hydrant #condom? #Firefighter

Sooooo, is this like a winter condom for your fire hydrant?

Glow in the dark reflective so you can find it better in the dark!!!

I love the extra effort people make to support their local fire department.

#SafetySur approves!

Popped in to Sharonville Fire

Great to pop in to see the pros at Sharonville Fire (Ohio).

Also oogling their new ladder truck too (Old midship mount tower ladder to new rear mount stick). They even went with a black stick. So chic!

As usual, they left me and went running out to save someone’s life. #awesome

Excited for their upcoming crisis communications class in December.

This kind of parking is unacceptable #Chicago #Fire #Police

One thing that bothers me is idiots who park in front of a hydrant.

Not like 30-seconds, but more like hours and hours and hours.

THIS IS A BLATANT DISREGARD FOR SAFETY!

So I called my friends at Chicago Fire Engine-35, Truck-28, Ambulance-62, Battalion-17 who advised that I call Chicago Police and inform them.

So I did. Chicago Police promptly showed up and ticketed the car. #booya

Hey Jagoff – enjoy your $150 ticket #0964100A (Within 15′ of fire hydrant).

Then a tow truck (hook) showed up and made my night because….

…I now have full hydrant access again.

Hey Jagoff! Now enjoy your $150 charge for towing your vehicle and $20 storage fee.

Expensive night out for your blatant disregard of public safety. Hope it was worth it.

Friendly reminder to anyone: Don’t park in front of fire hydrants. Ever.
