After an upstate New York fire department was told to take American flags off its trucks, other firefighters are speaking out and standing in solidarity.

The Board of Fire Commissioners reportedly told the Arlington Fire District that the flags the flags were a “liability during normal operations for our people and other motorists.”

Following a backlash, they compromised and allowed one truck to have a flag.

On "Fox and Friends Weekend" this morning, East Meadow Fire Department Chief John McGee said that he believes the only people who had a problem with the flags in the first place were politicians.

"I don't think it's anybody else but the politicians," McGee said. "Firefighters always fly a flag to show patriotism. It shows pride, morale for the membership in the fire department. And I believe that flying this flag is a great thing for this country to show who we are and what we're about."

He said that's why his department is proudly flying the flag on their trucks and supporting the Arlington Fire District.

“We want it to be on every truck, every fire department," McGee said. "Whether you are in New York City, upstate, across the country, we show our true patriotism by having this on our fire trucks and showing it for our military people who are fighting and defending that flag every day.”

So what's the next step? Anna Kooiman asked. 

“Big rallies, firefighters coming together bringing our trucks together and flying that flag loud and proud. Driving everywhere and letting everybody know we are not taking our flags off our fire trucks today.”
