  • Boston FD during the 80's video

    These videos were shot in 1986 with Engine 37 and Ladder 26. There are two-parts and it is excellent. A lot of the guys profiled are still on the job. Enjoy!

        The opening sequence made me think I was watching an old episode of Cheers.

          Wow, blast from the past. I remember Jimmy Gibbons, one of his kids is on the job now. Almost 30 years ago now since that fire.

              Very cool!!

              You know, there is no difference between those guys back then and the guys on the job now. Same issues, same fires, same complaints. The only thing that is different is the equipment.
