Our New FireHouse

When we moved here ten years ago, our firehouse was quite a long ways from us. It was something we gave a lot of thought to at the time and it also affected our insurance rates.

About three months ago we were extremely happy to watch as they built our new firehouse less than half a mile from our place. On Saturday, the last time we saw sunshine, they had an open house.



















Look at all those gauges!!


We feel safer and our insurance rates have dropped and all is well.

Everything looks so shiny and new. I'm glad to hear of the new addition - it'd make me feel safer, too.

That is SO COOL! Our momma's human pup is a volunteer firefighter and he just loves to help folks out! He has even saved a doggie once from a fire☺

We are happy to hear that you and your Porties will be safer with a nearer firehouse!

Seriously! You live in a town called Ebenezer? No wonder you don't love it - it reminds me of Scrooge.

Firehouse looks lovely though. Which dogs got to go? g

That's fantastic! We have a fire house just off the main road to our neighborhood. One Saturday morning I was driving past and there was a firefighter out in their front yard playing the bag pipes.

That is wonderful news, always nice to feel safer. What a beautiful fire station - and look at that kitchen. Mom says firemen are usually very good cooks.

Woos, the OP Pack

The Knight and Neighbor Guy are in the office this morning, so they had a good time looking at the photos too. I liked seeing the American LaFrance trucks, and the Knight liked the new International.
