Dallas Fire and Rescue, Station 11

We first met the guys of Station 11 through Freedom Day, a local day of service held to commemorate those who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Because of the friendship we struck up with these guys, our office has kind of adopted our local fire station, Dallas Fire & Rescue/Station 11. I've even taken Little Man down to the Station for a visit. The guys are super cool and let him try on all the gear and even ride in the truck. He loved it!

Last week, a bunch of people from our office went over to the Station for a visit to host a BBQ lunch. We grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and just hung out with them for a couple of hours. The firemen work on a 24 hour shift for 3 straight days, then they are off for 3 days. Weird schedule. So, it's fun for us to come over and break up the monotony of their routine. They love to have us over and we always have a great time!

Half the fun of going is playing with all their cool stuff!

  1. I'm amazed to learn that most firemen pay for their own meals and groceries when at the station. We have taken Thanksgiving and Christmas lunch to stations on a couple of occaisions and the guys are sooo appreciative.
