Awesome history , these are the posts that I love to read and see names that when I was just a young kid when I would go to the station with my brothers(mid/late 1960`s)
the guys who were active and some who became less active becuase of age but were still around the firehouse. I often wondered what roles they played when they were active. Keep up the great posts Brad.
