Sometimes the shift runs short. Instead of a 4-man engine company, we run with 3. NFPA recommends 4 for safety and efficiency on the fire ground but many communities have gone to 3 or even 2-man engine companies to save money. It means we have to be better, smarter, more fit to make all the things that need to happen in the first 5 minutes of fighting a fire happen.
It’s not very often that emergency responders show up in comic form and it’s even more rare that we appear in a webcomic, but Evil Inc. by Brad Guigar does just that. Check it out, the gags are good and the art is better.
The first strip has a couple EMTs and a toilet paper joke:
The other is a firefighter showing up after Captain Heroic extinguishers a fire in the ladies room of a restaraunt:
The new series Superior Spider-Man kicks off with some firefighter love. Spider-Man works alongside some firefighters to help save some New Yorkers affected by a large explosion. Kind of a nice idea since we’d get called out to anything like that even if the world were filled with super heroes.
