    Hello from Florida. I had the chance to visit your beautiful country back in 2000. We stayed in Ebletoff near some of my wife's family and visited Aarhus and Copenhagen.
    We had a great time and are looking forward to going back someday.

    Tell us about your fire station.

    Hi Mike

    Yes Ebeltoft isen't fare awey from Aarhus
    Well the FD in Denmark is a little deferent, from USA.
    I havent bin in the USA before, but still hope to get the chance one day.
    Before I start Ill want to say sorry for me spelling, Im a little better to talk English.

    The normal FD I Denmark got the education, so he/she can handle fire, hazmat, Accident whit cars and basic first aid.

    When an alarm is given for the apartment In Odense, we got 1 minute to go whit 1 captain + 6 FF, if we need more personal, we can call the haft-time FF, thee need to be off in maximum 5 minute 1 + 5. In Odense we got 3 teams off haft-time FF.

    If a call come as fire at building we take off whit:
    - Fire-engine, 1 + 3, this one got the BAs, the hose, the tool for caraccident
    the first aid kit, and 2.200 litters water ect.

    - Water truck, 1 FF, from 8.000 up to 13.000 litters, Beside water it got foam.

    -Ladder, 2 FF, 30 meters for rescue operations, + it brings high rescue equipment for vertical rescue.

    We do have other fire-trucks that we bring for other situations:
    - Hazmat, chemical suit, an all you need for this work.
    - Tender, it got 800 meters off 3 hose for watersupply
    - Diver, we always got 2 skuba-diver at work.
    - Heavy rescue, shoring (Paratech) liftingbags, hydraulic tool ect.
    - We got 4 fire-engine
    - We got 3 Water truck
    - We got 2 ladder
    - boat, pumps an CO2 trailers
    - We got 2 cars for the inspector (site commander)

    My work is a daytime job, where me primer function is education, I got the education to be site commander (inspector), and goes whit this one when I got the time.

    Now I have look a my computer, but find absolute no pitcher of the fire-station, so in this next week I will bring my camera.
