        A few of the nicknames from Providence, next door to my hometown:

        LaSalle Square (Downtown)
        Engine 3- "Men of the Metropolis"
        Tower Ladder 1- "The Road Runners" (I think)
        Special Hazards- "Excelsior"

        Brach Ave. "The Rock"
        E-2, L-7, R-3, Batt-3
        Messer St.
        Engine 8- "Screamin' Eagles"
        Tower Ladder 2- "The West End Express"

        Broad St. "The Broad Street Bullies"
        E-10, L-5
        Their symbol is a bulldog wearing a spiked collar and a leather helmet! (it's not in the best of neighborhoods)

        Reservoir Ave. "The Outpost"
        E-11 (used to be located at Braod St, was moved out to the training offices to reduce response times to the area I think)

        Admiral St. "The Wanskuck Warriors"
        E-12 L-3

        Allens Ave. "The Warf Rats"
        E-13(foam) R-1 (They're first due to most if not all of Providence Harbor, including all the giant oil and gasoline storage tanks...)

        Atwells Ave. "The Big Apple"
        E-14 L-6 R-5

        Mount Pleasant Ave. "The Highlanders"
        E-15 Car 56 (Fire Prevention)

                  Before anyone gets heated up, these are only jokes!!

                  "Scab Cab"

                  "Tart Cart"

                  "Midtown's Clowns"

                  Amazing as it may seem, someone will be offened by this, again it's humor, nothing more.

                            Well the town is Ederdsburgh, or just DaBurgh! No idea why, it's really Edwardsville, but I think it comes from all the townspeople calling it Ederdsville, don't know where the Burgh came from. * L * Station 10 is "The Dime" (obvious reasons), though that one never really caught on. Ladder 113 is "The Albitross" or "The Albi" for short. And Rescue 15 is "The Triple Nickle" (again obvious reasons). We do have T Shirts we wear at work at the Station over the summer or for parades and stuff that has a set of jaws crushing 3 nickles and says Triple Nickle on it, looks pretty nice. E11 sadly has none, but E12 is "Hotel 12" or "Motel 12" depending on who's working. * L * Just because some of the on duty drivers liked to lay across the front seat and sneak a quick nap on midnights. Not that anybody is supposed to know that.... * L *

                              In our fire district, our pierce snorkel truck is named chicken 1, because we use it alot for chicken house fires.
