I tried every- thing and it was all great!" Overheard from Rita Ray, talking about the Tarter fire: "Tom and I had been in Baker City all day and hadn't been home long when the tones went off. I struggled into my turn-outs on the way,jumped out of the car and landed ea- gerly and directly in a ditch full of water.., there just wasn't any groundthere. I climbed out and the next thing I knew someone had put a nozzle in my hands and said, "Go, Rita! Go, pull! Run!" So I went, and I pulled, and I ran I was proud of the re- sponse time and the turn-out; 15 ofourl7 firefighters were on the job within five min- utes." Overheard annonymously: "My Dunlop Disease is get- ting the best ofme.""Oh.., is it serious?" "Well, yes. My belly has done lopped over my belt."
