Off to visit another firestation today.
Apparently we are creating more competition. Again, we explained that we were visiting all the stations. These guys really want to be classified as the "coolest" station in Gwinnett County.
So they pulled out all the stops.
This is a thermal imaging camera for looking at fires behind walls, even searching for people if necessary. He let Lucas try it out. Very cool.
When Josh said under his breath..."We're gonna set the record"...
They pulled out the BIG Ladder truck...
Let LUCAS sit in the passenger seat, with the headset on his head, pulling ropes and setting off sirens, horns, lights, and the whole works as Scottie drove him around the parking lot. No JOKE! I got to sit in the back seat for our little cruise adventure with another headset and the 3 of us communicated like "real" firemen. Lucas said "over and out" and Scottie responded back. I was cracking up in the backseat because I could see the joy in the boy and it just tickled me for him.
Josh, Dean, Lucas, Scottie, Lieutenant Michael.
