A Driver Refuses to move for FDNY Rescue 1 as they arrive on the scene of a fire.

At a fire, Rescue 1 is tasked with Rescuing both civilians and firefighters who may become trapped, making it crucial that they arrive quickly and not be slowed down in any way by drivers. This driver can be seen waiting for a spot in front of a hydrant while Engine 53 Arrives at the scene of the fire. Rescue 1 then arrives and proceeds to pull up behind the vehicle, intending to find a safe and easy way for their firefighters to exit their rig without blocking traffic or getting hit by a car. The driver first waits for a passenger and then appears to consider taking the parking spot. After I stopped filming I asked the man why he didn’t move and gave him a quick lecture on how drivers are supposed to pull away from emergency vehicles. One firefighter, who I know personally, was injured in the fire and transported to the hospital. This video should prove to be a good learning experience for drivers, NEVER BLOCK EMERGENCY VEHICLES!

      Rear end him and get him out of the way and then get police on scene and make him pay a 1000+ find and impound his car, they Will learn when you do that

      He's lucky, the fire department has every right to push a vehicle out of their way when responding to an emergency call. If you are stupid enough to park in front of a fire hydrant, they will bust out your windows to snake the hose through to get to the hydtant.

      Why on earth did you pixelates the License Plate. The Driver should be named, shamed and banned from driving until completion of a Fire Fighting Course.

      What a disrespectful person. I think that they should be ticketed and hopefully they are in a severe accident and first responders don’t make it in time.

      When we would come back from mission, our trucks would box in cars that wanted to take their time when we were in a rush. The faces they made were so awesome.

      A better learning experience would of been another truck backing up and sealing them in. Then run some hoses through the windows opened up by a fire axe. Here in Boston/Area they don't know enough to pull over or get out of the way.

      If he new it was his family that needed rescuing I’m sure he would not have had to be asked to move out of the way twice. Us humans can be so incredibly selfish sometimes.

      They should have shot that cocksucker. And then when he finally gets out of the fucking way, he drives slowly like he's taunting the fire department. THEY ARE TRYING TO SAVE LIVES, ASSHOLE. THIS GUY IS THE BIGGEST PIECE OF SHIT ON EARTH...
