Hi there Buzznet! So, as I wrote about last night, I got to visit our local firehouse here in Pellston! My brother was doing computer work for them, and he invited me over to have a look around! Our firefighters are all volunteers, so there isn't always a crew in the building! I got a look at everything without disrupting anyone and was able to photograph everything that caught my eye!
So you know what that means Buzznet ... it is PHOTOBLOG time! Let's get started!
I took these as I was walking up to the firehouse! I think it is a very pretty building, and one that we can be very proud of!
I thought I would get a few shots of the signs that were around the building!
I ventured into the upstairs of the building, and found that it had a rather eerie feel to it! There was dust on the floor and my shoes left prints! That tells me that no one else has been up there in some time! I thought this cracking paint looked like something from a haunted house, so I took a quick shot of it! It was dark so I had to use a flash! There is a basement in the building, but I wasn't brave enough to go down there!
Now for the AMAZING fire and rescue equipment:
This fire engine looked so pretty! Just seeing it makes me feel safe in my decision to live in the beautiful village of Pellston!
This is my favorite shot of the day!
Here are some of the brave firefighter's lockers where they have their gear ready to go the next time a call for help goes out!
This antique toy fire truck is sitting on top of someone's desk area in the main office! I absolutely love it! One day I hope to actually meet the fire chief and photograph his office too! I could see through the window that he has a collection of antique clocks! That would mean another photoblog! (:
A photo of a photo! (: On the bulletin board they have a group photo of our volunteer firefighters posing with the big fire engine!
Just before we headed off to lunch and shopping, Andy took my camera and got this shot of me sitting on my new favorite engine!
So what is fire and rescue like where you live? Have you ever been inside your firehouse? If so, what was your favorite part?
THANK YOU TO EVERY PELLSTON FIREFIGHTER FOR THEIR SERVICE TO OUR COMMUNITY!!
