09/07/09 100 W, 1 I - + 10 - 14 Fire Station Slides in Wilson

As discussed in a prior posting, slides were installed instead of poles in a pair of Wilson fire stations. These stainless-steel chutes are present at Station 3 and Station 5, one each. They effect rapid egress from bedrooms to apparatus floor. That is, very rapid egress. There's wall padding waiting at the bottom. See more including one in action, or learn more about the Wilson Fire Department. This roving report was sponsored by a craving for corn sticks and chicken at Parker's Barbecue on Sunday afternoon. And they were good.

And one joke. What did the firefighter say after he landed wrong at the bottom? Chute!
