Fire Station Visit

I finally got to go visit Matt at the Fire Station today. I felt like a kid memorized by all the fire trucks and equipment! He has to "fill in" at other stations near his assigned station a good bit. The past 2 shifts he has been filling in at Station 19 and has also filled in at Station 9. Matt really likes Station 19 because it is the Haz-Mat crew. They stay incredibly busy night and day. When I got there, they had just gotten in from a call. I was there about 20 minutes before the next call came in. DeKalb NEVER slows down! Here are some of the shots that I took during my short visit!
The Haz-Mat truck. This truck responds to any fires on the North side of the county and to any hazardous material spills/wrecks. The wrecks alone keep them busy since they are right off I-285 at spaghetti junction!
Quint 19: This is where Matt rides when he fills in at this station.

I took the guys at the station a turtle cake and some redneck caviar! Needless to say, it didn't take long for it to be gone!

Matt's gear in the engine....ready for the bell to ring!
I got a tour of all the Haz-Mat truck. Holy cow....you never realize how much equipment is on these trucks!
