…is one shift at the fire dept. Yesterday was the last shift of 2007 for me. Here’s a peek into that world.
Here’s the crew… training. Yes, training! I know what you’re thinking, but no, that is not a game of Guitar Hero. It’s an exercise in teamwork… relying on each other to meet a common goal. It’s a moral builder and encourages team unity.
They take their training very seriously. Look at that focus…determination…intensity. Makes me proud!
First rule of a good Fire Officer: Never ask them to go where you wouldn’t!
For some reason my finger locked up into some arthritic looking mass, so I started shooting a few snap shots around the station.
This is the pump-panel, the controls for how much water comes out of which hose. It’s not as complicated as it looks.
At 7:30 this morning, 23 1/2 hrs into a 24 hrs shift, we get called out to an activated alarm….this one wasn’t false! Sorry we didn’t get any good pictures of the actual fire….just a wee-bit preoccupied at the time.
Is it out?
Someone, please tell me it’s out!
IN THERE, AGAIN…..ok.
What have you been smoking? The picture editor wouldn’t get this red-eye out!
I’m a dirty, dirty boy! But nothing beats the satisfaction of a job well done!!
Kirk Cameron ain’t got nothing on me!!
So, what do you have planned for the last day of the 2007?
