    We've been really quiet here, but here are a couple news articles from surrounding depts that have happened.

    This happened Monday into Tuesday morning. 5 depts on it. It relight again mid morning Tuesday and they were back there for a little while.

    My cousins dept is giving mutual aid on this one right now. Lumber yard in the middle of downtown got going about 430 this morning. Last I heard they were up to 5 depts as well.

    Here's a pic of my daily driver:

    2007 Ferrara Spartan 1500GPM with 750 gallons on board.

    Runs out about 65mph going down the road. :D
    Usually busy at working time, but we have been real slow lately. 2008 we had a streach of about 2 months with a working fire every day, usually night in January and February (temps in the teens), that got old real quick.

    The fire dept. in my hometown,has just gone to 24 hour shifts to save money and cut down on overtime. The union went for it for now as an experiment. Seems some firefighters said it would mean less money but better homelife to be able to spend an day at home with family and sleep in their own bed. Overtime is still an option when called out to fires. The town I live in now is mostly volunteer,they have two full timers at the station and could be asking for a third. The big cities in Ma., Lawrence I think, cut way down on personnal and may have to depend on mutual aid.

    I'll have to see what I can dig up. MVA's are our bread & butter around here, working fires are rare, so usually when we catch some work everybody is all over it and nobody takes any pictures.

    One of our county plow trucks burned to the ground this morning. It was a new international with a aluminum dump body on it. I will post the pic I have of it tomorrow. I am getting ready to go back out plowing in a few.
