    Looks like must be at least part paid.  Company needs a little more training.  Tripple lay pulled wront ended up in a pile, more aggressive fire attack needed with the 1st line.  If your not going to make the push in at least hit a window and move to others, Chief how about putting some gear on and hump the crew some hose instead of just walking around holding up the portable radio,  and last but least, looks like no hydrants so park the rig to support a tanker shuttle operation and  SET UP THE PORT-A-TANK! dump and go for more water!  Strike Da Box and Happy Thanksgiving to you all.  K

    Cmon this dept failed the minute they were distpatched. Clearly no training here. 1200 sq' house going good. Take line in the front and go room to room and knock it down. Instead they have oppossing hose lines fan inside? Was this a Benny Hill clip?PG county 2 engines a truck send the rest home we got it.

    Looked up the City of Palestine official FD site and it says they've been all paid since about 1900. Currently three platoons with a BC, Capt., Lt. and about seven firemen on each platoon. This is a city of about 18,000 so it's not like it some small burg with all volunteers that doesn't see many workers a year.

      Checked them out also, saw they had a few other videos and they see some good fires. Only downside is they had music.
