Work almost completed on Engine 317

The work on Engine 317 is progressing nicely, with new communications equipment, tires and rims. Before you know it, you will see E317 going down the road to a call or being sent out on a strike team assignment. Here are some candid photos of Capt Terry giving the engine compartment a final look before he closes the hood.

 

 


Let there be Light ...

The station is getting new energy efficient LED lights. Capt Bill applied and received an energy grant, the grant includes entry doors, insulation and LED station lights. The new lights are over the bay doors and parking area in front of the station, a new spot light for the flag and a new flood lamp in the back of the station. We will also be installing other lamps around the station to brighten things up.

--UPDATE--
All the lights have been installed at Station 1. There is now a good amount of light to brighten up all the dark areas, that make the station safer at night.
