A few weeks ago Lincoln Fire & Rescue installed a video recording system in BAT 1, the battalion chief's vehicle. The camera can both stream and record video from fire scenes. If properly positioned, the camera will capture some footage (are their "feet" in digital video?) from fire grounds that will nice for situational awareness for other units, after-action review, and training.
Battalion Chief Bruce Sellon, however, discovered evidence that the dash cam isn't really a new concept, when he found this video of Fire Chief John Kenlon from the Brooklyn Fire Department responding to an alarm.
Looks like the problem of motorists failing to yield the right of way to an emergency vehicle isn't new, either. Note that the driver jumps up onto the sidewalk, to avoid congestion on the street, he has a few close encounters with pedestrians. Too bad he didn't have the Binford 5000 bell.
