Reasons why you may not want to call the fire department anymore...
Homeland Security is working on a program to train the Fire Department to identify terrorist-y looking items in people's homes, like perhaps suspicious-looking books or DVDs, etc., after they enter your home.
"The Homeland Security Department has been secretly testing a pilot scheme in New York in which firefighters are trained to identify suspicious material or behaviour."
Yes, it's a good idea to politicize the fire department and encourage people to second guess calling them in times of need. It's not like fires spread or grow.
