As a volunteer fire fighter I will agree with you on that one. I often
wonder why more people don't sue for damage, I guess there is
little they can do. Some people in fire fighters actually have fun
cutting holes where they don't need cut or flooding places with water
they know don't need it. Our department is very good, but many of them are
not concerned with the property at all. 

Once the department is called, we take control. I don't care if you have
FM200 or not, we make sure there is no chance it will catch fire any time
