Nice to see the department adding companies instead of taking them away!

Deano thats Great. Not many places adding companies these days. At least not here in the Northeast.

  But I sure do like those older firehouses. No drivethru bays, No central air conditioning, hearing the steam pipes bang and those thin pane glass windows rattle on those cold winter nights. Paint peeling off the walls.  The kitchen table sitting right behind the rear of the apparatus and the old deep kitchen sink with no dishwasher.

  The new firehouses sure are Great, but its really kind of hard to beat those old beat up firehouses that the horses ran out of. (Ain't that right JohnnyD).
