I was able to go the whole week avoiding posting photographs related to the fire service, but I just couldn't make that one more day. In the last week I shot fire related photographs at work, Hagerstown and the Pennsylvania Pump Primers. Sooner or later I just had to post a few.
This guy was found sitting on the tailboard of a rig at the PPP last Saturday at River Front Park in Harrisburg. It was a very hot and humid day yet he stayed there for the duration of the event to show people how firemen used to dress for an alarm of fire. Wearing his duct coat, tin helmet, 3/4 length boots and chemox breathing apparatus he was ready to go to work. The guy did tick me off a little, I stood and talked to him for over an hour and he would not say a thing. The least he could have done was grunted like an engine guy if he wasn't smart enough to speak like a truckie, I should have known better, he was sitting on the tailboard of an engine.
