Also 2 stations have been abandoned, 1 of which will get completely stripped and re-occupied in a few months. The other I believe will need to be replaced. My own firehouse had 2 1/2 feet of water from front to back. All walls from 4' down are stripped to block and/or studs. Our bays, where the 3 operating vehicles we have (lost a van and utiltity truck) are about 90% operational. Storage closets and Captain's office are stripped 4' down and have no more shelving/cabinets/equipment in them. Our stalls for gear are gone (new ones on order). Air compressor....gone. Generator....gone. Lost some turnout gear, gloves, training equipment.
We are 127 years old. We had records from 1885 in our building. They are soaking wet. We have pictures from 1890's of members and their "apparatus". They are soaking wet.
There is much that can't be replaced. It sucks.
But as I stand at the front of the station and look east....I see people's houses in worse shape. I know areas near me (and people I know well) have lost much more.

Nope, no basement in our firehouse.
EMS agency has a basement, but they in drier area of town. That is where we slept the first couple nights."This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?
