2012 BUS TRIP TO BOSTON FIREHOUSES
The first stop on the tour was in Charlestown at Engine 32/Ladder 9. It was pouring to beat the band outside, but participants still enjoyed the visit.
The next stop was at Engine 9/Ladder 2. Engine 9 was on a call when we arrived, but returned shortly thereafter.

Next on the tour was the Division 1 Headquarters. Bob Fitz braved the heavy rain to get his picture taken with Engine 10 (and Sponge Bob).

The next stop on the tour was at Engine 22. The rain started to let up, which allowed for a little bit better photo taking. The Haz/Mat unit is also kept at this station as is the Rehab vehicle, which was not in quarters at the time of our visit.
After Engine 22, the tour went to Engine 48/Ladder 28 in Roslindale.
A number of interesting vehicles are also kept in this station including Brush 48.
In the back of the station was this antique Engine 54.
And in the basement of the station was this Christie Steamer.
The next stop was at Engine 53/Ladder 16.
