In the late 70's I had the opportunity to spend a few weekends with Engine 84, Truck 51 and Battalion 12 in the Southside of Chicago. What an experience for an 18 year kid from small town Pennsylvania. In 1992 I went back and rode the Engine and Truck again. The Battalion Chief had been moved to another station. Once again another great experience.
So if your with the CFD, hello from Pennsylvania. Tell Sonny Stallone I said hello.
