Station 95 Open House

Today was the open house for Station 95. We had a ton of fun. We were joined by the new 100' aerial ladder from Station 91, a vintage ambulance from AMR, a new ambulance, Engine 91, and the star of the day a helicopter from Medstar. We had a great turnout and we were excited to meet the citizens of the district and show them our station.

 Medstar coming in for a landing.

This helicopter is special because it was in Washington D.C. when 9/11 occurred.

Some of our company with vintage firefighting helmets from countries such as Germany, Russia, Italy and France.

The kids wanted to try on a helmet.

Then the full turnouts.

 Beautiful 5-Mile

 Smokey needed a hug and Firefighter Richards was happy to oblige.
