    Why is everything so dramatized at LF Wade.
    All they needed was an ambulance et al.
    Get real.

      See..this is a typical comment from someone that knows absolutely nothing. The fire trucks are there for fueling. Whenever there are passengers on board an aircraft and the aircraft need fuel the fire department is called.
