The Crew Commander and the Fire-Fighter

The Crew Commander

Fire Truck

The Crew Commander (to the right), and one of the fire fighters. There was a fire at one of the restaurants at the mall in Handen this morning. The employees managed to stop the fire, but the fire-fighters had to go back a couple of times as there was a problem with the ventilation system. I heard the news on the radio, and when I checked my flickr friend Jim's photos he had a photo from the mall. As I arrived a few hours later fire-fighters were still at the scene. I talked a bit with the fire-fighters and the Crew Commander and they said that everything was under control.

Firefighters the world over do noble work.

This comment is from someone who has greeted firefighters at our house at 3:00 in the morning with smoke so think that we could not see across the master bathroom.

Super portrait of these firefighters, Steffe. I like seeing their truck, too. Every location seems to have unique details about the equipment they have adopted for their fire department's use. I have several family members who are/were firefighters, so photos like this are very interesting to me. Not to mention they are nice looking guys! :-).

Fun to see the firefighting heroes from Haninge! Not a Volvo fire truck?!

Scania vehicles Leif. From Södertälje. Used to be Saab Scania. Today owned by Volkswagen. More info here.

That must have been a scary night Dave.

Thanks Jarart, comment away!

Glad you enjoyed the post Kim.
