Hello Mr Bill I am a FF w/ the WSFD in NC. I was wondering if you have any photos of CFD in action. Also I am still attempting to get my foot in the door at CFD for employment. If you wouldn't mind E-mail me at MR10baker@hotmail.com I am a big fire buff and was just curious. Thanks P.S. I really enjoy looking at the forum columns and seeing what's going on in the Queen City Keep up the good work. Take CAre and God Bless.
