Pemco Fire Department

Pemco Aeroplex - Birmingham Airport

Special thanks to Lt. Jeff Coleman for sending these great shots from the Birmingham Airport. I always appreciate it when people send me pictures of their department apparatus.

Lt. Coleman wrote that several Apache helicopters stopped by on their way to Louisiana for training. He also included some sharp images of their CFR units.

Thanks again, Lt. Coleman!

Irondale House Fire

Cherry Brook Run

Irondale responded to a residential fire alarm on Cherry Brook Run. When they got there, smoke was showing.

They laid 2 lines.

Mountain Brook responded Ladder 1 for mutual aide.

Irondale's Engine 1, Engine 2, Company 1, Fire Investigator and Chief were on the scene when I was there. Also, Mountain Brook's Ladder 1, Engine 3 and Shift Commander.

No one wants to have their house catch on fire but it sure looked like Irondale did a great job of stopping it. Fortunately, the ladder didn't have to go up.

I heard my old buddy from Birmingham, Payne, on the radio. I looked for you but couldn't find you, Buddy. Maybe next time...
