I have an uncle who is a career firefighter and though he has never faced anything like what you are I learned from him that heroes are only human and in stressful situations normal people become idiots. If that makes any sense to you. Whether those people realize or not you are heroes.

That looks absolutely nuts, take care of yourself out there man, and don't worry about people thinking you guys aren't doing your job well, you know that's a bunch of crap and so do most of the rest of us. If it weren't for firefighters, it would be so much worse, they just can't see that because they are upset about losing their home or car, and some of them are just jealous because they aren't as much of a man as you guys are. Good luck to you and your fellow firefighters.

I see, I was wondering why a fireman would be messing with water services. It makes alot more sense that utility workers would be handling stuff like that. I just broke a 4 inch water service that had an unlocated offset a couple of weeks ago. It was feeding a Coast Guard facility in Seattle. It made a huge mess in no time flat. Turns out it was one of three services feeding the base, so when we shut the valve, water was feeding back from the service side and we had to wait about 30 min for an escort so we could get to the valve on the other side of the gate. Water ended up making its way into the basement of one of their buildings so the fire dept had to come and pump the basement out.

      I have a Yamaha 350 in at once to try to fire up but won't. It's getting gas fire air and it has a lot of compression but still struggles to start check the timing it's top dead center valves are good valves are adjusted everything's working but won't fire I put my hand over the carb suck in gas and it tries to but it makes a lot of black smoke. Also when I put my hand over do you carb and tried to start it there's black black nasty stuff in the gas. So I don't know if it's trying to burn too much or what it is the gas tank clean and it anything to do with the gas it's with it firing. Took the spark plug out and it's pure black. What is dried up black not nasty corroded wet looking. Need help to solve the issue
