Spring Cleaning on the First Day

Today is the first day back for A-shift & it has proven to be pretty busy so far, well, for the Medic unit that is; five runs before noon & the HTR truck almost getting out of the house on a vehicle into a house in NW earlier. And if you haven't visited the #6 firehouse recently you've missed out on "Operation: Paint our Firehouse". The painter is doing a great job & the change is very welcome. In doing so alot of the furniture had to be moved & it was discovered that certain areas of the floor needed some attention. Last cycle was fairly steady but w/ no real significant runs to report on. Last cycle on Sunday the 16th, companies on the South Side were invited to a community picnic on Highland AV here in SE. Companies included were E6, M6, E11, E8, M8, E1, L1, & M1. There was plenty of food to be eaten & City Councilman Court Rosin also attended the event. Below are some pictures of the event, including a special Texas Ranger badge presentation made by FF Andy Foley to Capt. Todd Stone. Now he has the badge to go w/ the denim jacket haha!! On our last day we had a special guest come eat w/ us for dinner. Ladies this is Roanoke's newest most eligible bachelor, "Roc" Sink. Roc has been a long time friend of many of the firemen & visits on occassion to catch up on firehouse gossip & to see how everyone is doing. Stay tuned, you never know what we will be in next.
