STORIES OF THE VOLUNTEER UPDATE! PRE-PRODUCTION UPDATE

Still need stories of the volunteer. If used a credit will be given. Hey, not just firefighting stories, but related family and community too as long as the story is tied to the service and the firefighter.

“OOOHHHH, Look, Something Shiny!”

“OOOHHHH, Look, Something Shiny!”

Don’t let the excitement of a new apparatus overwhelm your good judgment

By Scott Cook



It happens a lot. You’ve just purchased a new apparatus, and it’s ready for delivery. Hopefully, you’ll be doing a final inspection at the factory, but you may be doing it at the station when the vehicle is delivered. It all depends on who you bought it from and what you negotiated up front.

Heaven Fire Department Poem

"Did you know there's a fire department in Heaven?"

I heard Cap say to that sorrowful lad.

The young boy just stared, working over the words he'd just been given.
