This is borrowed from a fellow firefighter. I especially liked this because I have many fond memories of riding this great old engine. This was back in the day of back step riding which is great. The only thing better was riding standing up in the jump seat of an engine. I miss those days, yes we are safer inside but it's just not as cool as feeling the air in your face and seeing and smelling the fire before you even arrive! Those days are over for good now though.
