Last week we went to Ladder 33 in Houston Medical Center for a tour of the fire station or trucks. The fireman were very nice and full of information. The fireman really wanted someone from the group to try on all the gear, and since no one else offered, I did the deed. It was super hot and yucky. Also it was very heavy and hard to move. I don't think I would last 10 minutes trying to put out a fire. The kids enjoying the truck.
