    I've got some..

    Well, first of all, my company: Janvier. It's French for January, but here it's pronounced Jan-Veer. We're always getting asked which is the right way to say it.

    Others:

    - Friendship
    - Goodwill
    - Greenfields
    - Lawns
    - Harmony
    - New Sharon

    And that's all I got.. they're all from Gloucester County in South Jersey.

    I'd say theres some Depts in the Province of Newfoundland that would have interesting names

    Dildo Point
    Placentia Bay
    Conception Bay South
    Roberts Arm
    Hearts Delight


    Just too name a few
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    I think "Waterproof Fire Department" has a ring to it....

    I was on a department in South Carolina in a town called Goose Creek. Now I was on Goose Creek Rural....not to be confused with Goose Creek City. Hard to believe a city with the name of Goose Creek is so big is has a Incorporated area department and a unincorporated area dept. (We referred to the place as Duck Pond)

    Maybe because Waterproof and Windproof are two totally different things??

    Well, the Newfoundland names got tagged and Boring, MD got "hit" too. The only places that come to mind off hand are Fanny Bay or Bowser, Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Both have VFD's if my memory is still good.

    I made a mistake in my first one about Newfie depts. It's not Hearts Delight, It's Hearts Content. Theres also:
    Wabush
    Sheshatshiu
    Natuashish
    Mud Lake
    Makkovik
    Black Tickle
    Witless Bay
    Goose Bay
    Ferryland
    Deer Lake
    Cupids
    Cape Spear
    Bay Bulls


    Cape Breton Island:
    Balls Creek
    Beaver Cove
    Buckwheat Corner
    Meat Cove(Probably the most remote spot in Cape Breton)


    Nova Scotia:
    Bear River
    Kejimkujik
    Tatamagouche
    Musquodoboit
    Herring Cove
    Liverpool
    Pugwash

    New Brunswick:
    Bath
    Plaster Rock
    Nashwaksis
    Nakawic
    Mactaquac
    Bouctouche

    I couldn't find any real good ones for PEI though.

    That pretty well covers most of the Atlantic Coast of Canada
