  1. Why no tanker? Much of south district has no access to fire hydrants . Trying to understand why south district fire doesn't have one. If someone knows please comment.

  2. Because most people in South District don't put hot ash in plastic containers.

    We leave those idiot moves for the dopes at Westlake Volunteer Fire.
