Gallery WTF
 

Someone once said that a picture is worth a thousand words... the GALLERY SECTION purpose is to HELP US ALL THINK about how we operate. We clearly understand that some pictures DO NOT always show the entire scenario-and these pictures aren't here for entertainment-they are here to help us learn. We try to be careful when selecting the photos that you send us... however, on the other hand, if these photos provide insight to similar conditions that any FF may encounter, that picture may make a big difference moments later to another FF--and that's why this section is here. Consider sending us your CLOSE CALL photos with applicable to details to billyg@firefighterclosecalls.com.
