    Wow, that is so cool! (No pun intended there!) Do you get a lot of fires?? How do you keep the hose from feezing?? How do you keep yourself from freezing?? We had a basement fire a couple of weekends ago right near the water, so we got that wind on top of the already frigid temperatures. Even with full gear on, I was cold!! And we had to roll the hose. We didn't use a lot, fortunately.

    Hello and welcome!
    Hope you enjoy the sight. I am also curious how you guys operate up at the Pole. We've had three building fires this past week in the low teen's and I didn't know if I was gonna make it! I hate the cold, so you get my utmost respect for working up there! If you ever feel like talking, give me a hollar.
    Stay safe -
