“A PHOTOGRAPHER’S PLACE AT A FIRE
Watch out for fire house.
Many a photographer has broken his or her neck or camera… or both, tripping over hose which lie in the streets. This is easy to do when your eye is glued to the view finder and you move into position for a shot. Look where you are going.
If you arrive at the scene by car, do not ride over the hose… even if you see the mayor and fire chief doing it.
Stay away from the high pressure connection… if they break, which often happens, you are in for a soaking.
Don’t throw used flash bulbs in the street.
Not only do they create a hazard… but it will antagonize the authorities. Put them in your bag or pocket.”
