WEFR Building and Apparatus Update...
Sorry for the delays in posting the building updates but in Northern Pa. the Elk rut is taking place and I spent all last week cut off from civilization. Wow! it was great to be cut off from the outside world for a week.
Work may have picked up at the WEFR buidling but the last time I was there things were progressing slowly. These were taken on September 21, 2011, additional stone had been brought in and laid, wiring had begun, pipes were put in place for drains and the engine room walls were being insulated as these were taken. The second photo for those that do not know is from the hallway door of the gear room. I did not get up last week because of being away but I do hope to make the trip being work days this week. Once I do I will try to get them on here as quickly as possible.
I mentioned WEFR apparatus in the titile. The company's fire police vehichle has been removed from service and sold. After traveling less than 200 miles between inspections and the fact that it needed work it was placed out of service at the end of August. Company members voted at the regular meeting to dispose of the unit. It was stripped of all its items and sold to a local man that is going to remove the motor and scrap the remaining parts.
The Vigilant's new building is coming along well and I really hope to start posting on it soon. I am using something new on blogger so I hope this post turns okay, if it works the photographs should appear larger on the main screen.
Oh and on the brite side I am now down to one year four months and thirteen days before I can retire. But who is counting.
