Are they having a sale???

Hey everyone,

In a little over 12 hours I will be officially on vacation!!!

This photo was taken yesterday at a reported fire in a pizza shop at a strip mall, this is one of the mutual aid engines that is awaiting instructions from command. I had emailed photos from this incident to another fire photographer and he told me he really liked this photo. So I decided to post this one today...

Have a great weekend!!

I am not sure how much I will be posting this week and possibly next due to being on vacation so if you do not hear from me, do not fret as I am not going anywhere.

I wanted to take a few moments and post photos of these storm clouds I took outside of my work the other evening. For more great SWF photos, click on my link to the left

Harrisburg Collages...

Hey Everyone,

Hope your weekend was good. So I decided to try something different for today. I decided to try creating some collages and see how they turn out. These are the first two I did. They are all photos from the Harrisburg Bureau Of Fire, either incidents or apparatus photos I've shot. Let me know which one you like better.

Have a great week!

The long walk down to first...

Hey everyone,

Some more photos from Philadelphia. This is a photo of Jayson Werth after making the final out of the inning leaving a runner on base. I don't recall which inning this was, I believe it was the bottom of the 6th. The other photos are of Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins and Cole Hammels, along with Jayson Werth.

In case you were wondering, the Phillies came back in the bottom of the 9th to beat the Pirates 8 to 7.

Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone,

2009 Pa Pump Primers Muster

Hello everyone,

Since my buddy Brad Myers was unable to attend the annual event this year in Harrisburg where he is very well known, He said he was looking forward to seeing some photos so today's post is just for him. The PPP is a annual muster of antique fire apparatus that parades through the city and then along Riverfront Park where they demonstrate what they can do. It is a good time and you see alot of old friends that you normally don't get to see.

Brad, You would be proud of Wyatt. It was his first PPP and I also brought along a coworkers son. He wanted to ride up in Tower 1. Wyatt then started pointing at the platform saying up,up. I said are you sure? he nodded his head yes and smiled. We got in the platform and he laughed and smiled the entire time. He did not scream or cry once.

Philadelphia Fire Department At Citizens Bank

Good Morning Everyone,

Saturday I went to Philadelphia to watch the Phillies play the Pirates. While going to get a drink and talking to my wife to see how everyone was doing, I noticed the PD closing off the street, I then heard someone say the FD is here. Well, that peeked my curiousity, so I moved to a different spot in the concourse area and observed Ladder 27, Engine 49, a Homeland Security Vehicle and the Philly PD Bomb Squad Unit. I stood there and took some photos before Stadium Security cleared everyone away from the areas and were denying access to the ramps to the other levels.

My initial thought was it was a suspicious package or a bomb threat against the ballpark. From what I found out, it was all done in preperation for the arrival of VP Joe Biden.

Have a great day!

Follow me guys..

Hello Everyone,

Hope your holiday weekend was good. I have been very busy with work and getting alot done at our new house. This was taken yesterday at a local mall here in Lancaster. Lancaster City Fire Department was dispatched to a reported building fire at the Park City Mall. Initial info was smoke coming from several stores in the upper level of the mall.

FD units arrived on the scene confirmed smoke in the wing of the mall. Cause was traced back to a faulty HVAC unit on the roof.

Have a great day!
