History / Re: My younger Buff years
« Last post by res8cue_99 on Today at 10:26:40 PM »
My name is Todd Sites and I have been a firemen for almost 41 years. I am not very good on the computer with comas periods and things like that so you have to forgive me. I had the privilege of buffing Engine 277 and Ladder 112 from 1997 until about 2002. A buddy and I decided in1997 to make a trip to NYC and check out some of the companys  and hoping to get a invite to stay. We arrived about noon and checked out some spots in Flatbush and the East New York area. All the companys we stopped at where very kind and open hearted but still No invite to stay. It is starting to get pretty late and we where in some places you really did not want to be in after dark. We happen to see a ladder truck backing in to quarters and we both said lets check this place out, it looked like a single house because of only one bay door. Turned out it was double house and the only one in the city like that, anyway we knocked on the door which was actually part of bay door which i had never seen before. The Firemen that answered the door was very polite and ask how he could help we said we where from otta town and if we could look around. I Still can remember to this day the words he said. Oh so you guys are here to ride with us we said no but we are looking for a place to stay and ride. Exact words go out get your shit your staying with us. So that was the begging of being apart of 277 and 112. Did not want to give out names or anything like that not sure if I could give out the names. But if anybody would like to email or anything like that please feel free to do so
