When we first entered the firehouse, Fireman Stevenson explained that it is their home away from home and they spend A LOT of time there. They have nice big, comfy chairs and a TV so that in between calls they relax. There is a bedroom for the "boss" and then a big room with lots of beds for everyone else. And sometimes they actually get to sleep. =) He showed us their kitchen and the big maps on the walls that help them know the city. Preston told him our address and he found us right away!
Then he took us out to the trucks. He showed us the ambulance, and there were some paramedics working on some stuff inside of it. One of them said he was an Eagle Scout... and had previously been a bull rider! Wow!
