    Don’t you just hate it when your departments Command Control Communication (C3) truck catches fire.

    When your the fire department and one of your truck burns up who do you call to put it out?

    Wait this Texas, darn these folks, they seem to lose a lot of equipment to fires... Insurance scam?

    As a former Organic Chemistry student during my undergraduate career, I was one of two firemen in our college's Organic Chemistry laboratory. We had two such fires of this type during my lab sessions. Believe me: such a situation is not funny! As a 20 year old at the time, it was the most scary experience of my life at that time.
