    Some refer our heavy rescue truck as the "Tool Box" and the light on top is called "The Sun" . . .

    Engine 5 of Delta Junction Volunteer Fire Department was called "Betty Crocker" by everyone in the community. The fire department had an old fire engine that wasn't reliable and they didn't have the funds to buy a new one - until they learned about a deal with the Betty Crocker Co. If they raised 8 million Betty Crocker coupons then the company would purchase a brand-new pumper for the town. Everyone got together and over the course of a few years they did it! They raised the coupons and the engine was delivered. They called her "Betty Crocker" from then on.
    In March Betty Crocker wrecked, killing our Deputy Chief. The pumper had to be replaced and Juneau Fire Department gave us one of their pumpers since we couldn't afford to buy one. This new engine is called "Engine 502" in honor of our fallen hero, Chris. His firefighter number was 502.

    Station 5- The Brier Hill Station
    Station 9- The Brownlee Woods or Pine Hollow Station
    Station 11- The Lansingville Station
    Station 12- The Scienceville Station

    Youngstown's station 7 is right next to Youngstown State University, who's mascot is the penguins, so I have always called Eng 7 "The Pride of the Penguins". I have never heard anyone else call it that though, but some of thier duty t-shirts have penguins on them.

    The Station I run out of is called "Little House on the Prairie" due to it being out of town in the more rural part of the district. Since everyone says our engine is the fastest in the fleet, we call it the "Prairie Rocket".

    OUR LADDER'S SIGN BOARD HAS "WE FIGHT IT FROM THE SKY"

    WE ALSO ARE SURROUNDED BY CAREER STAFF DURING THE DAY SO AS A MORAL BOOSTER WE HAVE "PROUD VOLUNTEERS 24/7" ON ALL OUR EQUIPMENT.

    MY OLD DEPARTMENT HAS "NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS" AS THEIR NEW SLOGAN.
    THEIR OTHER MOTTO IS "IN A FIX CALL CALL FOR SIX"

    WE USED TO SAY YOU LIGHT'EM WE FIGHT'EM BUT THAT KINDA WENT OUT THE WINDOW WITH THE NEW DAY AND AGE OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

    We have a brush truck that is a converted 5 ton military 6x6. At one of our family days one of the firefighter's daughter said that truck is so ugly that it is Double Ugly. The name stuck and it is a common thing to hear a request for "Double Ugly" to be dispatched.

    Our department's slogin: "Go Big or Go Home."

    Our old Pumper was called "Truck One" The unit we got to replace it was called "Truck Other One" and our new one is called "Engine One" There was debate about calling it "Truck New One," but Enigine One won in the end.

    Our Captain is nicknamed "Captain Hollywood" because he has been on tv so many times. Has a big star with "Captain Hollywood" over his locker.

    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 *
