Where I Work
I work for the City of
Tacoma as a full time Firefighter! I began in February of 1983, and
now I in charge of Ladder 3, A Shift, at Fire Station 9, located on 6th Avenue
near Union Street in
I used to drive
Ladder Truck 3, on B Shift, when it was located at
Fire Station 13, at North 25th and Proctor.
Ladder Company 3 is located at Fire Station 9, on 6th Ave and Puget Sound
Street in Tacoma.
From time to time we need to rescue people who are stuck on a cliff, high
bank, or some other hard to reach place, so we practice a lot of different
rope rescue methods.
Because we are called to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge
to perform rescue work, from auto accidents to attempted suicides, we have
spend time getting familiar with the bridge from top to bottom.
Engine Company 13
is also located at Fire Station 13, North 25th and Proctor in Tacoma.
These are pictures of Station 13 from 1911 to the present.
Here are some assorted pictures of some of the fire fighters who have been
unlucky enough to step in front of the camera!
