Congratulations Edward Waltz! Edward is the November winner of a brand new pair of Fire-Dex leather fire boots.
The Santa captions were hilarious this week! Click here to read all the great captions on our Facebook wall. We selected our top 10 favorites, put the names in a boot (of course), and pulled out Edward’s name. Our favorite captions were:
- David: On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a new pair of Fire-Dex boots..
- Austin: I see Santa finally grew his beard from the September boot promotion picture. I thought he looked familiar.
- Mark: Sorry Mark, I really needed to borrow your present, I will drop them by on the 26th–I’ll bring the cookies this time.
- Ken: I know my pants are supposed to go over my boots, but Mrs. Claus likes the way they look tucked in.

- Edward H: The beard is fake but the Fire-Dex boots are real!
- Shane: Santa I don’t think that suit is NFPA rated but those sweet looking Fire-Dex boots are!
- Tony: I bet these boots weigh more then I do.
- Jason S: Santa has learned to multitask. Putting out chimney fires and deliver presents all at the same time. Well played Santa, well played.
- Jason B: Santa noticed all the good firefighters asking for Fire-Dex boots this year that he thought he would get himself a pair.

Whether a station is in a high end community with fleets of vehicles or in a simple garage with one apparatus, the fire station is a great source of pride for the firemen who work there. Most fire houses reflect the age and condition of the community in which they serve. They usually blend in with the character of the neighborhood. Some fire houses are well equipped with fancy edifices and plenty of space for training, recreation and social activities. Other fire houses are very basic with just what is necessary to do the job. Most fire houses have a room for social quarters and an alert service to receive alarms.
Many Fire Houses have become considered by the National Register to be historic places (like the one above – Firehouse 1 – Roanoke). These stations were built in the 1800 and 1900’s along the East coast of the United States. Most of these stations are located in the center of cities and are very large in scale. Some of the older and non-renovated stations still have the stalls for the horses that use to be a part of the crew. Today some of these stations are museums while others are still in use or are being used for various other purposes.
Now many fire departments have been moved from the center of cities and are on the edge of town with quick access to highways and major roads. Also many larger cities have multiple stations to ensure rapid responses.
