an oldie but still a good one

Thanks to Pastor Edgar Carlisle for sharing this.

One  dark  night  in the small town of Woopwoop, W.A,  a fire started
inside the local sausage  factory. In a blink the building was engulfed in  flames. The alarm went out to all the fire  departments for miles  around.
When  the first volunteer fire fighters appeared on  the scene, the sausage company president rushed  to the fire chief and said, 'All of our secret  sausage recipes are in the vault in the center  of the plant. They have to be saved, so I will  donate $50,000 to the fire company that brings  them out and delivers them to  me.'
But  the roaring flames held the firefighters off.  Soon more fire departments had to be called in  because the situation became desperate. As the  firemen arrived, the  president  shouted out that the offer to extricate the  secret recipes was now $100,000 to the fire  department that could save  them.
 Suddenly  from up the road, a lone siren was heard as  another fire truck came into  sight.  It  was the fire engine of the  nearby Baringa  volunteer  fire department composed mainly of Aboriginal  firefighters over the age of  65.
To  everyone's amazement, the little run-down fire  engine, operated by these Aboriginal  firefighters, passed  the  fire  engines parked outside the plant, and drove  straight into the middle of the inferno.  Outside, the other firemen watched in amazement  as the Aboriginal old timers jumped off and  began to fight the fire as if they were fighting  to save their own lives.. Within a short time,  the Baringa  old timers had  extinguished the fire and saved the secret  recipes.
The  grateful sausage company president joyfully  announced that for such a superhuman  accomplishment he was raising the reward to  $200,000, and walked over to personally thank  each of the brave elderly Aboriginal  firefighters.
A  TV news crew rushed in after capturing the event  on film. The 'on camera' reporter asked  the Aboriginal fire chief, 'What are you  going to do with all that  money?'
'Well,'  said Chief Billy Cokebottle, the 70-year-old  fire chief, 'de furst ting we gonnna do is fix  dem brakes on dat  fire  truck!!'
