My Firehouse

My poor little Fire station is so torn to shit right now, they have all the external sheeting off of it and the insulation off, all there is the steel frame. It still smells of scorched electrical and plastics.
Our little Brush Engine just came back from being Repainted and it looks good, My Structural Engine will be a Year out to replace it, and that's on the fast track with Boise Mobile. I have to get my ass in gear and start getting some of our younger firefighters thought there Pumper Operator class, and I have to finish my Tender Operator work book.

thats all for now sports fans
