The Ford Raptor makes an awesome fire truck

Everything that makes the Ford Raptor an awesome truck in civilian hands (go-anywhere off-road prowess, speed, truck capabilities) makes it even better when in the command of first-responders.

San Diego County Fire Department Battalion 5 utilizes this particularly well-equipped Raptor as a quick response fire fighter for rural areas that require a 4x4. It's also used for aiding those injured in the Ocotillo Wells area while in off-road vehicles. And the best part? There's a GoPro camera system in it.

How about a demonstration video?
