...if this is the view from your office.

That's a stock picture taken late last year at the Raleigh Fire Department's maintenance shop. It's one of a series of stock shots created for the centennial history book. Project photographers were given the assignment to document less-photographed department activities. Such as fire inspections, shop work, and the inner workings at the Office of the Fire Chief. Some were staged, some were "live." 

I'll be posting some of those shots in another day or two. Production on the book wrapped on Monday. Work has started on all the after-work, including organizing and sharing some of the stock shots. These will be particularly useful for future document or web page use. And, of course, general yuks among those pictured (and those who escaped being pictured). Click to enlarge:

I work in my department’s public information office, and recently spent a day with our Fleet division, shooting it and compiling a story highlighting them. I’ll be posting it on our Facebook page in the coming week (I’m the department’s photographer). We (as an office) feel it’s important to recognize as many aspects of our department as possible – the FD’s more than just engines, trucks and ambulances, and we should show that!

I agree with Doug… The RFD Services Division and Fleet Maintenance are truly some of the “go-to-guys” for RFD! They work very hard to keep us “running” and do a great job!!
