11/08/11 192 W - + 7 - 6 Morning Reading - November 8, 2011

Good morning Miami, er, Raleigh. Returning to town today, after a few days in Florida. Included some time in the Keys, and finding and researching former and historic fire stations in Key West. Was relaxing. More later.

Wake County Firefighter's Association meeting tonight - This is your reminder. Rolesville Fire Station is the location. Meal and meeting. 

Holly Springs to get new fire station - News & Observer story with the latest on that project. Here's our last posting on same, with a linked demolition video and linked photos to the current temporary Station 2. 

Crowder's Mountain Engine 55 accident - FireNews.net story from last week. Two firefighters transported with minor injuries. Engine 55 was returning from a call. It sustained an estimated $150,000 worth of damage.

Virginia Beach apparatus accident, seven injured - FireTruckBlog.com story from last week. Three firefighters transported as precaution after collision with car. Four people in the car also transported, one with serious injuries. Believe Firegeezer was observing last week that these seem to be daily things around the country, apparatus accidents at intersections. Have they always been happening this often?
