How much does a flux capacitor run for a truck that size and how much plutonium did it burn up going 3 days forward? Asking for some friends.

Some say it's the end of an era, others a new beginning. So many amazing stories and memories have been experienced in this place. To many it's just a building. To so many others, its home.

Watching that was sad for me, I can remember being in that station as a kid before it had the upstairs. Between being in the old station 18 in sugerland and being there with my dad I had so much fun as a kid, then when I became a member and was able to run out of there. Sad it see it go but so glad you all are getting a new station.

Fire Prevention Week! Make Sure You Know What That Sound Means!

That little chirp a smoke alarm makes means one of two things. The battery needs to be replaced, or the whole alarm needs to be replaced.

--Smoke alarms with non-replaceable (long-life) batteries are designed to remain effective for up to 10 years. If the alarm chirps, warning that the battery is low, replace the entire smoke alarm right away.
--For smoke alarms that do not have non-replaceable (long-life) batteries, replace batteries at least once a year. If the alarm chirps, replace only the battery.

That was hard to watch, so many memories there

Bittersweet, my dad did the groundbreaking on this one.

Wow that hurt my heart. Such a magical place. Did someone save any of the bricks??

Is this the dept in Sterling Park?

Kind of sad. A Sterling landmark. Time marches on.

David Shafer didn’t you try and do that years ago with the medic?
