A firefighter is working on the engine outside the station when he notices little johnny next door in a little red wagon with little ladders hung off the side. The boy is wearing a firefighter’s helmet and has the wagon tied to a dog and a cat.
The firefighter says, ”Hey little partner, what are you doing?”
little johnny says, ”I’m pretending to be a fireman and this is my fire truck.”
The firefighter walks over to take a closer look. That’s sure is a nice fire truck,” the firefighter says with admiration.
? Thanks mister,” johnny says.
The fire fighter looks a little closer and notices that johnny has tied the wagon to the dog’s collar, and to the cat’s testicles. The boy says, ”You’re probably right, mister, but then I wouldn’t have a siren.”
One dark night outside a small town, a fire started inside the local chemical plant. Before long it exploded into flames and an alarm went out to fire departments from miles around. After fighting the fire for over an hour, the chemical company president approached the fire chief and said, ”All of our secret formulas are in the vault in the center of the plant. They must be saved! I will give $50, 000 to the engine company that brings them out safely!”
As soon as the chief heard this, he ordered the firemen to strengthen their attack on the blaze. After two more hours of attacking the fire, president of the company offered $100, 000 to the engine company that could bring out the company’s secret files.
From the distance a long siren was heard and another fire truck came into sight. It was a local volunteer fire company composed entirely of men over
65. To everyone’s amazement the little fire engine raced through the chemical plant gates and drove straight into the middle of the inferno. In the distance the other firemen watched as the old timers hopped off of their rig and began to fight the fire with an effort that they had never seen before.
After an hour of intense fighting the volunteer company had extinguished the fire and saved the secret formulas. Joyous the chemical company president announced that he would double the reward to $200, 000 and walked over to personally thank each of the volunteers.
After thanking each of the old men individually the president asked the group what they intended to do with the reward money. The fire truck driver looked him right in the eye and said, ”The first thing we’re going to do is fix the damn brakes on that truck!”
A fire started on some grassland near a
farm in Indiana. The fire department from the nearby town was called

The fire proved to be more than the
small town fire department could
handle, so someone suggested that a
rural volunteer fire department be
called. Though there was doubt
that they would be of any assistance, the
call was made.
volunteer fire department arrived in a dilapidated old fire truck.
They drove straight towards the fire and stopped in the middle of the
flames. The volunteer firemen jumped off the truck and frantically
started spraying water in all directions. Soon they had snuffed out
center of the fire, breaking the blaze into two easily
The farmer was so impressed with the volunteer fire
and so grateful that his farm had been spared,
that he presented the
volunteer fire department with a check for
$1000. A local news reporter
asked the volunteer fire captain what
the department planned to do with
”That should be
obvious,” he responded, ”the first thing we’re
gonna do is get the
brakes fixed on that stupid fire truck.”
