When you are at an injury accident the firefighters or rescue works are there to get the people out of the vehicle. I bet the trooper came over there put his two cents in and got in the way more than once so firefighter moved him. The trooper was there to investigate the accident. He or she has no buiness getting in the rescue workers way. If that is what happened.

I use to be a firefighter and when we worked scenes with police or sheriff or the KSP. they were always acting like big shots. I don't understand why they (the police) Think they are better then everyone else. Thje firefighters are there to save your life. Believe it or not they know what they are doing. Firefighter wouldn't be on that scene unless they were trained. before pointing your finger to the firefighters why not do your own research and find out that they are the ones putting their lives on the line for YOU. thank about it.

The KSP are very egotistical and very unprofessional. I've lived all over the world, and find the KSP to be very unprofessional and disrespectful, not to mention the lies I've seen them tell while under oath. I have even been a witness for the state and was asked to lie for the KSP. KSP has no respect from me, the only group of people I respect less than a KY trooper is a KSP detective. The new Govenor needs a special task force.

Unless you was there you don't know what happened. Police officers put their lives on the line more than firefighters, both have an important job to do and need the support from the public. Find out the whole story before throwing stones.

I was not there so I don't know what the entire story is. I am a firefighter/emt and a police officer in Warren County. I have never been on a scene with KSP or KVE that there has been a problem. Warren County (Post 3) has some of the best Troopers in the State. We all have a job to do when we are on the scene. If there is a problem, on the scene is not the place to disagree. Wait till later and then talk about it.

my personal opinion is that both the trooper and the firefighter were unprofessional in the handling of the scene. agree to disagree get the scene cleaned up in a proffesional manner and take care of the problem after the incident. both parties involved are in communtiy service and both put their lives on the line. that is still no excuse for eithor of them to behave in such a manner.

im not for sure to call it bragging or not jermey but some firefighters tell the story they have been apart of to relive stress and at times in the hope to get some of the imagies out of there head(that goes for some of the volintiers that come in and search for people)they just need a outlet for the things they have seen. coalbud i agree with ur opinion it was unprofesional and should have been handled differntly, i just hope it can play out better in the future.

Can't move on Connie. This is a bad police officer. He has a chip on his shoulder, a superiority complex that puts ordinary citizens in danger. He doesn't need to be a policeman any more. get him off the force, then we can move on.
