I stumbled across a new resource recently that caught my attention: FDLiveIn.com.
The concept of fire station live-ins or bunk-ins, depending on what you call them, has been around for quite some time and with quite a bit of success. Different departments run their programs in different ways but the common theme is that the firefighter lives in the fire station “rent-free” in return for volunteer service. Most live-ins are students but not all, and in some departments entire families live in the fire station.
For whatever reasons, the concept has not caught on in my area of Erie County NY and I’ve always wondered why.
