FireRescue1 readers give us some of their cleverest slogans for the back of a fire truck

By FireRescue1 Staff

This incredible photo out of Lexington, Ky., made us laugh so much we had to share on Facebook. So we asked our fans to tell us what slogan they'd like to see on the back of their apparatus. Some came up with funny ideas. Some relayed actual funny slogans. And some offered slogans, that while funny, we're not able to republish if we want to keep things "family friendly."

Below, we've listed 15 of our favorite back-of-the-rig slogans. Please enjoy and add your own creativity to the list.

Spartacus Jones Spartacus Jones Friday, February 08, 2013 6:17:05 PM In the service we said "The unwilling lead by the incompetent to do the unnecessary for the ungrateful." It fit pretty well, I think. But I don't think it should describe the fire service. I'd go with " We've done so much with so little for so long, we can now do practically anything, with almost nothing."
