Firefighters are Back!

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Last Friday, November 12th, Brisbane Firefighters spent their first evening back in Brisbane.  For the last 2 months, they had been spending evenings in Daly City at Station 93 (464 Martin St.) after severe mold was discovered at Station 81 -- click here to read more on our old blog site.  Now, the all firefighting crews will be staying in the semi-permanent trailers that can be seen just outside the Fire Station when you're driving along Bayshore. 

Today, the firefighters had a special delivery -- their lockers!  And it was no big deal that the delivery man didn't have a ramp to unload them from his truck.  With 3 firefighters -- Capt. John Murphy and Firefighters Craig Briscoe and Aaron Sorani -- the job got done.  From unloading the 200 lbs. lockers, to getting them on the dolly and up the ramp and through the small entryway of the trailer, these guys make it look easy.

And with most things, you learn as you do.  The second time up, the guys used the floor mat to drag the lockers through the doorway.

They asked for the palettes (pictured below in the foreground) that the lockers were delivered on -- one of the firefighters thought they would make for good shelves to use in the lockers!  Smart thinking.

And lastly, a peak inside their trailers -- featuring the most important room of them all -- the kitchen.

We're glad you guys are back in town, and within the expected time period!

Sand Bags Available

One can never be too prepared!  Sand bags are now available atop two palettes outside the gate of the Public Works Corp Yard, located at the intersection of Tunnel Ave. and Lagoon Rd.  Each sand bag weighs approximately 15 lbs. and are free for the taking.  So please stop by and pick up the amount you need...more will be made by the Public Works crew as necessary to ensure the community has what it needs to guard against flooding during the rainy season.  And, the below pics illustrate how Dolan, Joe, and Keegan from the PW crew got sand bag-making down to a simple, easy process -- with the help of some safety cones acting as pastry bags.  Now, that's creative.  Good work, guys!
