10/11/14 204 W, 1 I - + 4 - 4 Scenes From Emmitsburg

Reporting from the road and the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) in Emmitsburg, MD. That's where the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial weekend is underway. Mr. Blogger is a member of the media team, and specifically a photographer for the media. Coverage of the event is continuous on the NFFF Facebook and Twitter channels. You'll also see some sundry updates from me, via Twitter.

Here are a couple quick shots from Friday. Upper left is a Howard County Fire-Rescue command unit that's been graciously provided to the media team. That's my "office" for the weekend. Upper-right is a 2013 Oshkosh Striker from BWI airport. one of three rigs on display on the memorial grounds. It's parked beside the dining hall. Bottom is a mobile-phone panorama from the stage at the memorial. 

You can watch tonight's candlelight service and tomorrow morning's memorial service live at http://www.firehero.org/. Here's this year's roll of honor, which includes five firefighters from North Carolina who died in the line of duty last year. (See prior posting on that subject.) Watch the Twitter widget in the upper-right hand corner of the blog home page for more pictures through the weekend. Click to enlarge:
