Tina's Pic Story - Emergency 'E'



Tina's Pic Story allows us to take photos, not randomly but to follow Tina's weekly theme, which this week is the letter 'E'.

Today I look to vehicles that respond to Emergency situations, so have chosen a couple of fire trucks, one newer and enormous and one old and not so much, both part Webster Hose Company 3 in Ansonia.
The big one is a Pierce, purchased by Ansonia new in 2009, and huge. It carries the six fire fighters safely inside and pumps plenty of water onto the flames. 

I hope that I never need their services...the old one is is a local museum and is a Mack and was purchased by the city in 1946. Not as enormous, but it was once elemental is arriving at emergencies. So the letter 'E' is here, happily without emergencies now...

I love old vehicles, to my surpeise i found the uppermost picture amusing. The fire engine looks like smiling, don't ask me why.
Have nice day :-)

That old fire engine is really cool. We all hope we never need them but it sure is good to know that they are there if we do.
