Engine Company 13

Engine Company 13 is located at Fire Station 13, North 25th and Proctor in Tacoma.

Here are some pictures of the B Shift crew (Bill Colwell, Harold Kerns, and Larry Ellis) at work and play...

Just Another Drill

During a recent multi-company drill, the Training Van suddenly erupted from within.   According to witnesses, a dry chemical extinguisher was activated while the van was in motion.  So far the suspects have been narrowed down to the driver and his passenger.  The Driver (Training Captain Gary Scheiz) claims innocence, and the passenger (Rescue Randy) continues to play dumb.

Foam Angels

The Brave Crew of Engine Company 13 practices with their new foam system, the AUTO CAFS (compressed air foam system)!  Remember folks, these are HIGHLY TRAINED PROFESSIONALS, please don't try this at home...
