Bartow County, Georgia Car Fire
Enough toasters for across the pond. Now for some REAL fire apparatus.
Bartow County E-6 arrives on the scene of a car fire in Interstate 75 in North Georgia, USA. They only have 1 man on E-6 so he has to do everything! Set up the pump, don his gear and SCBA, pull the attack line, go back to the pumper and charge the line... (whew!) ...and THEN fight the fire. Rural departments have minimum manpower and it unfortunately puts their safety at risk.
