    Default Station 3/East Slogans

    Need some slogans for a Station 3 on the East end of our county. Any ideas? I have done a search and found some, but most are general, not much that rhymes with 3 or East.

    Is there any landmark nearby? Our Station 3 is near the Country Club, so we call it "Three by the Tee".

    The Engine stationed there, Engine 3, is called "The Beast in the East"

    The landmark thing is a good starting point. There is a jail/prison less than a mile away.

    slogans need to be pertinent to the district, crew, or both.

    It's not something that you can google on the internet or mirror your Engine 3with someone else's.

    If it helps, we have 57 stations, but no 3, 9, or 12. Use one of theirs.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    Back before he was killed by a p.o.s. drunk driver, we had a Lt. that we called "Dookie" Dyer because he was alwys in $#!( up to his neck because of something stupid that a new firefighter would do at station one, he used to be the shift supervisor under the batt. chief there. Anyway, his name got shortened to Duke, so on our shift, we called ourselves "Duke's Dueces" since we were engine co. 2. Now I think all three shifts call 2 House "Duke's House". Anyway, it's something you have to make personal, it can't be generic, that doesn't really work too well.

    Yea, arbitrarily picking your own nickname just doesn't work and seems kind of silly.

    It's gotta be organic.
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    I'm at a station 3.. We are out in the middle of nowhere at my base, so I tend to call it vacationland.
