Yesterday when I went out to my car after work, I saw the fire department next door practicing with their big ladder truck. Fortunately I had my camera, so I took a few quick pictures. Also, fortunately, there was no fire. I’ve thought about walking over to the fire station at lunch sometime and taking pictures, but never have. I took this one from the parking lot at work, so got a little lucky with the timing. I don’t the name of the fireman, but the photo was taken at the Petaluma Fire Station. The geotag is on Zooomr.
I have to give a bit of public thanks to the Petaluma Fire Department. About 10 years ago my daughter fell off a slide and was knocked unconscious. The fire department responded quickly and rushed her to the hospital. She was fine, but they really treated her great and even gave her a little stuffed animal bear. Most importantly they knew how to handle two frantic parents. A long belated thanks.
