Some guy showed up at headquarters the other day with some cold cuts he'd found in a shopping cart in a store parking lot that he wanted to 'donate.' Thanked him for his donation and after he left promptly threw it out at the recommendation of a Lieutenant. Wasn't sure what store the man had come from or how long it had been in a cart, so yeah, we didn't really trust it.
Due to MOC being down (again), I uploaded the new Truck 6 here on my Flickr! Truck 6 is a 2013 Pierce Arrow XT 100' rear mount tower ladder! I have yet to paint the white ladders because after several trials, I couldn't get the right thickness. I'm hoping to complete Engine 6 and Engine 107 today or tomorrow...
Rather serious MVA last night; sedan hit (or hit by) a pickup truck, and skidded off the road, over a trailer on the side of the road, up and into a tree. Driver self-extricated and was transported.
The pickup truck wasn't in terrible shape. Coulda been driven home except the back left wheel actually got pushed around.
Units that responded: PD car 2-3 (spare), FD Engine 6, Engine 4, Ambulance 5, Ambulance 45, Paramedic 81, 2nd Asst. Chief and 3 POVs that responded direct. Fire Police was about a quarter mile up the road and a utility unit (with a rather odd backstory) was down the road a quarter mile blocking traffic.
