Ladder 49 clearly has a Federal Q siren in the direct center of the truck. Also it is clear that Engine 33 does not have a Federal Q. In multiple scenes of the movie Engine 33 is arriving on scene and you hear a mechanical siren coming from the truck, such as the apartment fire during the snow. Also even when you see Ladder 49 coming on scene, the mechanical tone sounds nothing like a Federal Q. See more »

If you want to watch a film that rivals "backdraft" Watch this one!!!
This film is easily one of my all time favourite movies. Joaquin Phoenix and John Travolta make "Ladder 49" Unmissable. During the worst fire Jack Morrison has ever fought, he falls through the floor and is "busted up" pretty badly. As his mentor Mike tries to find a way to save him, Jack has Constant flashbacks,that tell us how Jack Morrison (Phoenix) started as a rookie fireman, and mentored by his good friend Mike (Travolta) he becomes the greatest fireman in Baltimore. The on-screen chemistry between Travolta and Phoenix, makes this movie one of the best fireman movies out there. If you are in need of a good movie, watch "Ladder 49" But just make sure you have the tissues at the ready!! (sniff)
