  1. Accidents are really a surprise; they come unannounced. Who will think that one good day will turn out to be your worst nightmare? Good thing nobody was hurt so bad in this accident. Firefighters should have an insurance policy that offers a wide coverage and extensive benefits because these people are most prone to getting involved in an accident.
