Jewish Fire Fighters

One dark night outside a small town, a fire started inside the local
chemical plant and in a blink it exploded into flames.

The alarm went out to the fire departments from miles around.
When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical
company president rushed to the fire chief and said,
"All of our secret formulas are in the vault in the center of the plant.
They must be saved.
I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact.
But the roaring flames held the firefighters off.
Soon more fire departments had to be called in as the situation became desperate.
As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer was now $100,000
to the fire department who could bring out the company's secret files.

From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight.
It was the nearby Jewish rural township volunteer fire company composed
entirely of men over the age of 65.

To everyone's amazement, the little run-down fire engine operated by
this Jewish Fire Department passed all the newer sleek engines parked outside
the plant.....and drove straight into the middle of the inferno.

Outside the other firemen watched as the Jewish old timers jumped off
and began to fight the fire with a performance and effort never seen before.

Within a short time, the Jewish old timers had extinguished the fire
and saved the secret formulas.

The grateful chemical company president joyfully announced that for
such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000,
and walked over to personally thank each of the brave,
though elderly, Jewish firefighters.

The local TV news reporters rushed in after capturing the event on film asking,
"What are you going to do with all that money"?

"Well," said Ari Hertzfeld, the 70-year-old fire chief, "the first
thing we are going to do is fix the brakes on that stupid truck!"

I read that joke a few months ago, except it was with Norwegian firefighters in Minnesota!

This is about the 10th variation of the joke I've seen; it's been around for a while.
