You know I know next to nothing about firearms. But, please explain, how
would an off-duty policeman who as a volunteer fireman is on the way to a
fire, defend himself from a guy laying hidden in the bushes with a rifle?
I know John Wayne and colleagues used to do that, but that was not in
upstate New York.

non-answers to my question noted. As someone else mentioned, who inhis
right mind would carry firearms when going to fight a fire? Even having
arms locked up in a car/firetruck would be silly since there is the
possibility that a thief could come along.
If your argument were, where were the police who should be among the first
responders, that might indeed be a good question.
The original situation that caused that quote, is a cop who had firearm
stolen out of the cruiser, while he was at his own home. No fire, car
locked, no keys in the ignition.
