Having served as both a police officer and a firefighter, I can only say that if I were the police officers captain or Chief, I would fire that officer immediately. It is clear that the FF was only looking out for the ambulance crew as well as the patients injured in the accident by leaving the fire truck positioned where it was. It is a sad commentary that police vs fire/EMS rifts even exist and if you recall the shooting in West Webster NY, you can have a better understanding as to how these firefighters put their life on the line as much if not more than the police often do..... Shame on the CHP and I truly hope the officer is dealt with accordingly.
