Well, you just never know what you’re going to see when you go to war. But there’s definitely one thing that you wouldn’t expect… and that’s a big red fire truck, complete with firemen. Yuppers, this FOB has been around for more than a decade and like others it’s size, it has buildings. Where there’s buildings, there’s the potential for fires. So, where there’s fire, there must be firemen.
Even more surprising was to have firemen deliver patients from an accident on the FOB. These guys were all kitted out with full-on fire gear… and it was hotter than heck outside. I don’t know how these guys didn’t drop in front of us from heat exhaustion. Well… you just never know what you’re going to see from day-to-day on the FOB. :)
