Fire Truck


Usually when I see a fire truck, it is rushing to an emergency and I am just trying to get out of the way. I saw this one just parked next to the pharmacy when I was picking up a prescription, so I decided it was a perfect opportunity to get a picture.

Hello Lois, that is a large car! I love to seen it. And my son too :-)

The EMTs sometimes pull these big rigs into our Publix parking lot while they run in to get some goodies! They take up a lot of room.

Re your comment about the horse on the ground: It was a young colt, just having fun rolling around...he was happy as a lark! Finally got up and followed mommy to greener pastures! :)

Wishing you a great week ahead!

Very nice! I usually see fire trucks in the grocery store parking lot while the firemen are inside purchasing what they need for a fantastic dinner.

Nice catch. There was a letter to the editor here a while back complaining about seeing one parked at a cafe. With an answering letter pretty much explaining that firemen and EMTs are not robots and have to stop once in a while for human activities such as eating and etc.

Quite similar to the ones we have here. Often they might turn up at a grocery store here after a fire- a good time to pick up supplies for the station house.

That's a pretty big rig; certainly glad that they are available!

They go to the grocery store here too or the Tim Horton's Coffee place nearby! They deserve it!

Nice image, that is a big fire engine. The firefighters are heroes every time they go out to save people and places.

I got so excited seeing your big shiny fire engines when I was in New England. I came home with at least four photos of them! They are very different from ours.

You couldn't pass up an opportunity like that Lois! Looks very smart, our firetrucks are more all over red colour!
