VEHICLE FIRE? WATCH THIS BUS FIRE:

Below is a video link that every Firefighter really needs to see...it is a fire in a CNG - powered bus, which was occupied and in service at the time. The driver and passengers discovered the fire and bailed. Good decision. This happened a few weeks ago in Wassenaar, the Netherlands. The CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) buses have their tanks on the roof. Thanks to BillN for the heads up.

TRUST US-We haven't lead you wrong yet: you need to watch, share and review the video, from the start.

THINK ABOUT: Training on these vehicles, size up prior, alarm response, size up on arrival, apparatus positioning, risk vs benefit. And try to imagine this happening in a tunnel.
