Re: Factory fire
We all know how dangerous magnesium is not to mention the extremes if one is burned with it.
What bothers me is the STUPIDITY of people that chase fire trucks or simply have to go & watch fires. The do not seem realize how they are making it so much harder for the firemen, ambulances, police & others that MUST be there to actually getting out like to the hospitals & for other importatant reasons. Nor do they realize that things like magnesium can be tossed into the air to land on them & burn, that the fumes might be EXTREMELY toxic & just so much more.
Friend of mine was a volunteer fireman & always pissed off with the civies there to watch the fire. This one time, when he was driving the fire truck he intential hit a number of onlookers with their cages. Said onlookers had to pay for their damaged vehicles as THEY were in the wrong. So much trouble from the mayor & others higher up that he quit as a 12 yr vet ------ they lost a good man.
