The Fire Department on YouTube

I think I can say this is one of the most interesting uses of YouTube I have ever seen. The Tribune Review mentioned that the Sutterville fire department (located in Westmoreland County) has a video on YouTube of what they do each year. In the past 10 years, I have watched 2 different buildings burn from significant fire – check out pictures from Harris Grill Fire last summer here. Additionally, firemen and police officers are the ones that we count on to respond to some of the most horrific events, accidents and tragedies. I know there has been some frustration in Pittsburgh over the fire fighters contracts but I do have a level of respect for the people that are willing to help out with some of the worst situations that the rest of us never have to deal with.

So here is the video, well music video, of some of the things that the Sutterville Fire Department works on. I would love to hear more about how they decided to put together the video.

    It’s great to see that our colleagues in the Keystone State are using YouTube.

    If you’d like to compare and contrast the Los Angeles Fire Department in action, you can tune to the LAFD YouTube channel:
