I enjoyed watching the T.V. Show
23 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed watching the T.V. Show, I wish they still run episodes like they do for the Dukes of Hazard. I would like to see of anyone has a copy of any of Code Red Series that I can buy. If anyone does, Please send me an e-mail to Wade222@excite.com. This show inspired me to get into the Fire Service. After watching Code Red, I checked around to see if there really any Fire Explorer Posts, and I found a couple where I live, but none of them offered any Ride Along programs. Then I found an Explorer Post in Florida, and found some of the Fire Department allowed their Explorers ride along. Then when I turned 18, I became a Volunteer Firefighter for two years and enjoyed it.
