It was a bit of a gloomy day yesterday but I took some photos at the grand opening of our new fire station in St. Paul. They brought out some really old fire trucks.
The Saint Paul fire department on the scene putting out a fire. The owner wasn’t home. At first I resisted the temptation to take pictures but the home would have burned no matter what I did. Watching the firefighters made me realize how important it is to live near a fire department and how hard they work. They are all ways there for us ready to risk their lives to save us and our homes.
I can see the pretty fire trick through the window. I have to get inside to take a photo.Â This is out new fire station on West 7th and Randolf in St. Paul, MN . . I will get inside. 🙂
I am so excited about the new fire station. I love the way they designed the building to fit in with the older buildings around it. The bays for the firetrucks are set up so that they can drive in one door and out the other. They put a beautiful antique firetruck in the front window. The windows are dirty so I didn’t bother trying it get a good shot. I am not sure when the new station is going to be up and running. I must get photos!
It is located on the South corner of Randolph and West 7th and will replace the fire stations on Randolph and the station on West 7th.
