• Short Summary

    A rural fire brigade go through an exercise in a snowy part of Germany.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Fire - Fire - Fire! Bad enough when a fire occurs in the centre of a big city equipped with the latest appliances - but supposing it happens in the heart of a snowbound Continental forest? Then the fun begins - ".

    Germany.

    M/S of a fireman blowing a warning horn in a snowy street. Other firemen run out of a building and put on their helmets. They run down the street, followed by children, and come to a clearing in a forest. They put on snow-skates and pull a crude wagon containing their hose and pump along behind them. They put the end of the hose into a crack in an icy lake and start pumping. Water starts shooting out of the hose.

    No sign of any fire though! Must be just an exercise.
