    Default Any old firefighter stuff?

    I just recently became a fulltime paid firefighter and bought my first house. I am trying hard to find old firefighter related things to decorate a room. Let me know if you have any old tools, helmets, badges, extinguishers or whatever else. Thanks alot

    Two things new paid firemen do.

    1. Buy a new pick-up truck.
    2. Decorate the basement bar with fireguy stuff!

    I like.

    Of all the fire related stuff I own for decoration, I've only bought one thing in an antique store.. (An old extingusher). All the rest (Helmets, helmet shields, badges, old mask, gloves, accountability tags, coat tail nametag and coins) i've gathered over my years in service.

    I'm one of those weird guys that doesn't collect firefighting memorabillia.

    If I did, however, I think it would be even more special if all of the stuff was either things you had used or worn, or were at least limited to the department(s) on which you served.

    I agree with Dfurtman - take your time and collect stuff that will have meaning to you.

    I agree with yall too and I plan on it. I was just hoping people had some stuff to make due with right now. I recently got a house and I am in the process of making one room fire. I dont want to just leave it bare waiting to obtain stuff.
