While one must never discount the importance and dynamic appeal of a fireman [see also: totally hot], we forget the other unsung hero in this scenario…the hose! These guys serve a serious purpose, deployed in active duty for over 25 years…saving lives along with their human counterparts. They do so much but after they run out of steam, what happens?
