Firefighting Bikes!
« on: July 24, 2010, 08:54:22 PM »


British firefighters are testing out BMW bikes fitted with water tanks and a high-pressure nozzle as a cheaper and quicker alternative to fighting small fires not requiring life-saving equipment.

The idea has been around for a while.

Tool do job=Good tool

A 'Veteran'is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made
payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to, and
including his life.'

I guess the success would depend on the accuracy of the person reporting the fire. I understand the economic considerations but if it were my stuff I'd like to see a whole battalion arriving.

Cool! And yes, firefighting motorcycles have been around a long time, it is just that modern firefighters here in the States have lost sight of the efficiency they might offer in low risk situations.
