  • Probably the only comment I'll ever leave on a video. I was a volunteer firefighter for 10 years and we were required to have the same training as career firefighters. I had my hazmat certification as well as my Firefighter I certification some guys are able to complete more and go on to become career firefighters or just be very knowledgeable volunteers. This guy was extremely great to watch and I liked his, "It's gonna be pitch black..." statement, it's so true. Can be clear as can be outside with sunshine and inside the building will be near total darkness and can't even see your hand.

  • The only time I've ever expierenced a fire with my dad being a firefighter for about 30 yrs before retiring, he had us drop him off at the fire one time and the other was us dropping water off and making sure the guys didn't need anything when they worked about a 30 hour welding factory fire. My dad was almost killed that day, I'm glad chief noticed he was about to round the corner of a explosion and saved his life. I know I never could do what my dad did. the thought of running into a burning building is terrifying. Thank you for your service my guy!

  • I once was at a grocery store and couldn't reach something on the top shelf and a group of firefighters were in the same aisle as me, so I asked the tallest one if he would reach it for me. The shortest firefighter chimed in and said "Why didn't you ask me to do it?" As embarrassed as I was to have to ask for help for something so trivial, I kind of just shrugged my shoulders and smiled awkwardly. Mad respect for helping out in the community and risking life and limb, even for something as simple as top shelf item retrieval.

  • 21:30 I think the thing is about the Towering Inferno, I'm pretty sure the stairs were actually on fire and therefore they had no choice. I seem to remember it being a plot point about the movie.

  • I would've loved to see him comment on the first episode of HBO's "Chernobyl". People always talk (well, argue) about the accuracy of the series as a whole, and the radiation, politics and liquidation, but I'd love to hear about the little details of how realistic the portrayal of the first responders was, like this sort of analysis. Any firefighters in the comment section?

    AietraAietra8 kun oldin
  • I like how most of the other experts on this show introduce themselves saying stuff like: "Hi, I am X, a world class expert in the ancient art of knitting oven mitts" or whatever. And he just says: "Hi, I'm Greg, a firefighter."

  • One thing I want to point out about Ladder 49 that they got right was the scene at the power plant where the firefighter gets burned. They airlifted the firefighter to the hospital and they were able to get the Maryland State Police to film the scene. Here in Maryland, the State Police provide the majority of medevac fly outs.

  • Also side note I promise you can be calm while your house burns and you are there, I personally had my own house burn ran back in like a dummy to save my dog, (got him btw and he’s still alive to this day) but I was quite calm when they came in, I got my dog and they escorted me while I laughed at the fact that I even went back. Then I went out side and fired up the neighbors garden hose and put out the grass while they put out the house. Rough night, but a learning experience 😅

  • Steve buscemi actually was in New York City firefighter before he became famous. During 9/11 he actually left Hollywood and actually went back to New York and became a firefighter again and dug through the rebel of the world trade centers. As in New York City firefighter he won 100% is an amazing actor and an amazing human being.

  • The Chicago fire scene was filmed whilst I was in pe in the health club that’s right behind it I’ve never seen the scene as it was in the show until today

They had almost no visibility and later found out a huge section of the floor was missing. He's the most calm person I know.

  • Firefighters are absolute alpha males. The human body was never meant to fight fire, much less thrive in it but that's how firefighters earn a living. I would describe them as working class heroes. Everyday miracle workers who remain humble. That's the pinnacle of being an alpha male.

    • @v Bertun Many alphas don't look at themselves as alphas but they are. It's probably a result of the humility. Thank you for your service!
