Seriously, that's a cool old station and some classic equipment...what a great picture!
very cool! congrats on the new station and good luck with getting it up to steam. what kind of coverage area will you have? any idea on what kind of equipment you'll have?
Well, our station project is (finally) officially underway! A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Friday, May 13th (you know we would have to kick off the project on Friday the 13th :eek:). Various local and State officials were in attendance including Louisiana State Fire Marshal Butch Browning, Louisiana State Firemen's Association president Ken Pitre, and state representative Karen St. Germain.
As of this Friday (May 20th) we're still waiting to see some work you could actually call construction. The surveyers were out early this week shooting grades and marking the property lines...there's some stakes in the ground and the guys doing the dirt work came out and looked over the jobsite, but that's about as far as we got this week. Hope to see some actual equipment arriving on site this week...
Sorry about the picture quality, I got them off of Facebook :)
Congrats! Sounds like you guys needed an upgrade!
Sorry to take this off topic but I enjoyed the old firehouse pic and I know there's quite a few of us that like the nostalgia. Here's a shot of the house I'm sitting in as I type this. Hope it stays in service another few years....
This station is also still in service on our city's north side. The other of 2 100+ year old stations we have.
Trying to get pic to work...it's at 1801 Laurel St., Station 1...Built in 1926...
Glad to hear things are moving along......... :)
Good luck on the building of your new station! I'd love to get our company to where we could build one. We have troubles everywhere with our current station! (Bay not big enough, Driveway is cracked like crazy, No drainage) Just improper building!
Keep us updated!
I'm happy for you..Congratulations! buddy.. At last, the long wait is finally over.. That's great..
