Last Saturday we attended the official opening of our new fire station. It was a gray day, but it was a wonderful gathering with lots of speeches and some traditions that I did not know about. For example, the dispatch came on the speaker and officially put the station into service and then the guys pushed the main engine back into the bay to put it into service. Well, they were supposed to push it, they practiced ahead of time and couldn't do it so the truck was running and had some help from the driver. Anyway... it was still really cool!
