Donald KnightTuesday, January 08, 2013 9:35:50 AMyou have to be joking.
Jim RiseboroughTuesday, January 08, 2013 9:52:13 AMI'm sure they didn't go out of service. if another call came in, they could pack up and leave. What if that squirrel was yours?
Russ GregstonTuesday, January 08, 2013 9:57:49 AMIt would be a chew toy for my dog!
Everette TaylorTuesday, January 08, 2013 10:04:54 AMI don't have a problem with rescuing any type animal, however, that many men and that much equipment may have been a bit excessive. On the lighter side, I'm glad the squirrel is ok.
Ivan BolglaTuesday, January 08, 2013 10:20:42 AMA 22 rifle could have taken care of the rescue and lunch
Everette TaylorTuesday, January 08, 2013 10:22:07 AMAwe, Chief! You'd shoot little Hammy from Over the Hedge??? LOL
Chris WikeenWednesday, January 09, 2013 8:32:53 AMWe are a full service department and would of done the same thing, rescue the little guy but remain in service if another call came down. Good job to those guys for doing the right thing. The public loves you for it. Way to make points.

Bobby CobleSaturday, January 12, 2013 6:56:17 PMOn the surface, I have to say, sending that many resources for this was a bit excessive, and seemingly absurd. With that being said, I think it would have been a good training opportunity for new firefighters, but I would have left it to the rookies and the training officer not the entire on duty crew.
