Volunteer Fire Department

A fire started on some grasslands near a farm. The county fire
department was called to put out the fire. The fire was more than the
county fire department could handle. Someone suggested that a nearby
volunteer bunch be called. Despite some doubt that the volunteer outfit
would be of any assistance, the call was made.

The volunteers arrived in a dilapidated old fire truck. They
rumbled straight towards the fire, drove right into the middle of the
flames and stopped! The firemen jumped off the truck and frantically
started spraying water in all directions. Soon they had snuffed out the
center of the fire, breaking the blaze into two easily-controlled parts.

Watching all this, the farmer was so impressed with the volunteer
fire department's work and was so grateful that his farm had been
spared, that right there on the spot he presented the volunteers with a
check for $1,000. A local news reporter asked the volunteer fire
captain what the department planned to do with the funds.

"That ought to be obvious, " he responded, wiping ashes off his
coat. "The first thing we're gonna do is get the brakes fixed on our
truck!"
