    Nice work, man! I’ve been stationed here for the last few weeks filling a spot vacated after promotions. Love working with this crew! And this station is one of my favorites in the city! Thanks for doing a great job immortalizing our profession…

    Love your work Travis! You always capture images that most people probably don’t even notice.

    Great job Travis! I grew up east of EC so anytime we went to ‘town’ we would pass the station. It warms my heart to know that you have a true passion for the history of this station and were willing to put in the time to capture it. It did bother me a bit to see how outdated alot of things are in the station (knowing that those who protect us deserve much better) compared to the luxuries that prison inmates have. But then I read the comment that Frank left about it being his favorite station to work at. So, it shows that true history is much better than fancy digs. Once again, Thank you. And thank you to all the men and women that keep us safe.

    Wow your article and pictures brought back many childhood memories my grandpa Michael McQuillan was employed there for many years and I spent many hours in that fire station. I also remember the fire trucks when they were bright green and red. Thank you so much for the trip down memory lane

    Outstanding photography!
    Use of black and white was inspired.
    Great work.
