The Fire Truck

The Fire Truck

A fire started on grassland near a farm. The county fire department was called to put the fire out, but the fire was more than they could handle. Someone suggested that a nearby volunteer crew be called. Though there was significant doubt that the volunteer crew would be of any assistance, the call was made.

The volunteers arrived in a dilapidated old fire truck. They rumbled straight toward the fire and stopped in the middle of the flames.

The firemen jumped off the truck and frantically started spraying water in all directions. Soon they had snuffed out the center of the fire, breaking the blaze into two easily controllable parts.

Watching all this, the farmer was so impressed with the volunteer fire department's work, and was so grateful that his farm had been spared, that right there on the spot he presented the volunteers with a check for $1000.

A local news reporter asked the volunteer fire captain what the department planned to do with the funds. "That ought to be obvious," he responded, wiping ashes off his coat. "The first thing we're going to do is get the brakes fixed on that fire truck!"
