Wish you'd done this a month ago. Back in GA, we had a gem of a fire station, beautiful building and such. Never thought to take a pic of it with my trike. Maybe when we go back for a visit. Nevertheless, good idea, doc!

I've got a few. In 2012 my Incident Command Team went to help after Hurricane Sandy. We started out in West Virginia to help open roads. But when we were done there we were asked by the New Jersey Fire Marshall to help with a survey of the Fire Departments along the shore. Greg from Florida and I teamed up and went from station to station to see how they were doing to recover after the storm and if the State could help them out. The majority of the Departments were Volunteer and most have been in existence since the late 1800's. A few preserved the old engines. I wasn't there on the bike but here are some of the antiques they had preserved.
1. & 2. Mannasquan VFD, 1922 Engine, I think it was a LaFrance but didn't write it down
3. Belmar VFD Station
4. Belmar VFD 1889 Steam Engine
5. Deal VFD Greg & 1952 Mack Engine

Three more from Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey;

1. Resources came from all over the country to help. We ran into these Mississippi State Troopers at the Long Branch Fire Station.
2. Since I was a young teen hanging out at the local fire station in Detroit I had wanted to slide down the pole. Of course they wouldn't let us kids back then, but the Branchport VFD stopped their clean up to let Greg and I complete this bucket list item.
3. Red Bank VFD Hook and Ladder Station.

4. & 5. After our 2014 Texas Hill Country Meet-N-Greet I rode the long way home. Going through Brenham, TX I noticed this museum outside their main station. It was already closed for the day but this 1879 Silsby Steam Engine was in a huge glass case.

I could get a pic of my bike in front of the fire hall down the lane, but seldom do I see the trucks outside. At least when I'm on the bike...

Be blowed if I know Mark. But I think they need to update their fire trucks.:grin2::wink2:
