Shuffling through some print photos finds this, Firefighter Michael J. Legeros posing with Engine 19. That's the last of the open cabs, a 1968 American LaFrance with shop-built canopy and acrylic windows attached with velcro. Observe absence of either air horns or modern siren. Crossing Capital Boulevard against traffic was a trial, with the nose siren screeching, the horn beep beeping, and the eagle-topped bumper bell ringing furiously. And if memory serves, the light bar was a new addition. Single beacon was atop just weeks earlier. The photo is dated, say, September 1989. About four months after graduation. Look Ma, I'm a fireman!
