They had a tire blow out. I bet they also know the difference between there and they're. Unlike you!

Maybe you should enroll in a typing and spelling class. Sentence structure might be a good idea also.

" A preliminary investigation revealed that as Tanker 5 was progressing through a curve on Robinson Road a tire failure, with a “blowout” and full tread separation, occurred. At this time the investigation into the cause of tire failure is ongoing; however, it is apparent that the tire failure is a factor that significantly contributed to this collision. Tanker 5 was en-route to the fire ground and was fully loaded at the time of the rollover. Tanker 5 is capable of carrying 3000 gallons of water."

I love the grammar police. Too - or should I say, 'to' - funny. There, their, they're now.

Did anyone ever think that the tire blowout thing was just a perfect excuse. Have you ever noticed that the firemen in Salisbury are never given a ticket when they are involved in an accident even when it is obviously their fault.

Maybe Dangerous Darrin Scott was driving?

Question about a "reported" house fire in Salisbury.

Central alerted Stations 16, 2, 1 and County Station #5 (Hebron) for a reported house fire at 1121 East Church Street near the corner of E. Church and Main Streets. This is near East Salisbury Elementary School.

Why did Central dispatch Station 5 instead of Station 6, Parsonsburg? I would think that Parsonsburg is much closer to that house than Hebron is.

going around a turn at high speed will blowout a tire.

Sometimes I think 'firefighters' can hurt themselves getting out of bed in the morning.

Certainly monitoring tire pressure must be a normal daily check at the fire house, and a "blowout" in a dual wheeled vehicle would seem a minimal incident. Turning a truck upside down requires a talent unknown to me.
