Just watched your video. What's the (real) problem? I see PVFD rushing to provide mutual aid to another fire dept in another district or jurisdiction not their own, upon requests to do so, and doing the best they can to get there as fast as they can, with the only directions made available to them, as any (rural) fire dept will do. I see a fire firefighter asking for your immediate assistance to keep a child (presumed to be his own) within your vehicle a safe distance away from the fire scene; I see a devoted fire fighter who obviously rushed in response to a crisis, on a moments notice, multi-tasking to keep everyone safe, and under the circumstances, he deserves a gold medal, and then some. I see you dangerously following in an obvious non-fire dept vehicle, with a non-fire dept issue video recorder (hmmm, illegal) trying to make it something it is not.<quoted text>

It takes a special kind of person to do what these (and all in all) fire fighters do; paid or volunteer (FYI, hence the rightful & nationwide name "BROTHERS"); though I know PVFD to be solely Volunteer,(as I reside within this community) and which in my opinion just adds to their awesome character and moral being. Not everyone has what it takes to rush to the aid of another human-being in need, to put their lives on the line to save another human-being, including their pets & livestock, homes and property, both commercial & residential. And your video just goes to prove their devotion to this [PVFD] much needed and appreciated volunteer community service.
What these men and women do in their personal & private lives is just that; personal & private. As surely as you can appreciate the same. I don't care what they may or may not do in their personal & private lives, as long as they continue to do what they do as Volunteer Fire Fighter's; which is far greater than anyone who videos them for public display.
What this all sounds like to me is a personal vendetta; which has nothing to do with how these individual's perform their duties as PVFD Volunteers and/or within and around their community.
BTW, have you done anything to help your local volunteer fire dept lately? donated any much needed funds to help keep this free community service as readily available as your video does show?
If I were an Attorney, I'd offer to represent PVFD in a civil law suit against you for this slander here on Topix and attempts to do the same on YouTube. But, I am not. So all I can say now is ...
SHAME on YOU!
