05/07/12 156 W, 1 I - + 10 - 9 North Charleston Fire Department Group Photo

How about an old-fashioned fire department group photo, with a complete fleet of apparatus and vehicles and all personnel ? The North Charleston Fire Department in South Carolina made this stunning image, which is found on their web site. View a larger version as the cover page of their Stragetic Plan document (PDF). Give a gold star to the planners of that shot! NCFD operates 12 stations and what looks like 12 engines (including a quint?), five ladders, and two rescues. Plus some other special units. (They're the third-largest city in the state. Are they the third largest fire department, also?) Believe the background is City Hall and the photographer perhaps on the roof of a nearby commercial building? Talk about a perfect setting! What other fire department group photos have you seen that you liked, either on the web or hanging in stations? Click to enlarge:

Wow, and to think that a single fire alarm or medical call could have ruined it!

What is most interesting to me is that North Charleston is a relatively new city – just incorporated in 1972. I have taught several EMD classes in North Charleston. Yes, that’s their city hall. I’ve been nothing but impressed with NCFD and also the county EMS system. They also have an awesome 911 center that has just consolidated from several smaller PSAPS. I look forward to each class I teach down there – very professional group!
