Having never even heard of the fire police (there's no such thing in Florida), I was stunned the first time I had to deal w/ 'em here in PA. I wondered who these "wanna be" cops are. I haven't had any bad experiences with 'em. If you play "the game" right, you can get your shots with little fanfare. Thankfully, when dealing w/ fires in the city of Philly, I get to deal w/ Philly cops who are cool. Even the Philly firefighters are great, allowing access close up.
