Must see rescue video: French police jump into action at apartment fire.

This was posted earlier today by one of the more than 300,000 fans of the Firefighters Worldwide Facebook page. It was uploaded yesterday to YouTube. 

Firegeezer Bill Schumm has much better worldwide resources than my mom and pop operation (or is it just pop?). Firegeezer's French bureau chief has the details of this fire and tells us it's local police making the rescue.

It has a lot of similarities to the Spiderman type rescue we showed you from Moscow recently, except these guys have a longer ladder.

    A lot of firefighters diss the cops for doing stupid things.  Believe me, we do dumb things too…we can see it on videos on this site!!  The cops in general are as concerned about the citizenry as we are.  When it comes to fires, they just aren't as equipped as we are.  The opposite is true when it comes to us and criminals.  These cops deserve atta boys all around…they did good!

    Pretty sad that the cops were able to arrive onscene with 6 officers, obtain a 35' ground ladder, place, extend and climb it. Do a 'high wire act', remove a victim from a balcony … all prior to the F.D. arriving at the fire. Is that community over staffed with PD while not having properly deployed and staffed FD resources? I'm glad the victim was removed and nobody was injured in the making of this video…
