Got an invitation from 24seven to go down to Central Firestation for a visit, these photos are gonna be good educational exposure to my pupils!
Its their 100th Year actually, 🙂 Click to see their building’s timeline.
Heard this on TV sometime ago:
“How is it that firefighters can run into a burning building while everyone else is running out?”
and just as Mr Smith asked me on twitter,
“@avnjl Ooh… U going to get to meet some hot fireman?? Eh wait.. tat only happen in the states right? Lolx”
🙂 my reply?
“@smithankyou hot or not hot, they are all man. D distinction, the kind of responsibility they hold”
But I do agree that Fire fighters are very admirable. The kind of focus, the kind of selfless-ness.
Esp when you know you need to walk into a building that you just might not be able to see anything at all,
One life for another. 🙂
Amanda salutes all the fire fighters out there!
Thank You for serving!
Went down with a few bloggers,
The girls are like so pretty loh! Got a twin some more lo…
Introducing Cpt Andy Tan~ Our guide for the day,
Yellow Suit with White helmet oki~ Dont play play,
He was just sharing, they were trained to have “disturbed sleep”
Its like although u were sleeping, once the alarm goes off, they’ll be like FLASH!
Its like even faster than you can say “fast”… fast until I didnt get the start pose shot…
heres the guys demonstrating the Bear Hug Style,
How fast? Fast enough for the man on the bottom left hand corner to take a few steps…
4 in one Row! SG Style!
They are all trained, dont try this at home. (叔叔有练过 O. Translated: Uncle has been tranined.)
Like so Cool!
had a walk-around and talk-to by the good people there,
Paramedic on ambulance.
its interesting how some have background in Engineering but they switch over to this line 🙂
Hoh! You see that pack she’s holding?
You better clear when she is using that and shout “All Clear!”
Its a portable defibrillator… You know the two items that doctors would rub together to jump start the heart/shock a patient back to life?
Thats the one. 🙂
Its amazing the kind of portable equipment they have in this speedy machine.
8mins! and they will be at the scene!
🙂 Do you know?
In SG, Ambulance doesnt exactly come from the hospital, they come from the SCDF, or in this case Fire station.
We were introduced to the massive amt of equipment there,
😀 thank God we have a superman (Cheng Xi) there to help us be the model when necessary 😀
thats the operating tools for a Hydrant.
So the next time if u were to witness a fire and you know wheres the nearest Hydrant remember to make some noise and direct the fire fighters there, they would need the water supply!
the tool that would blow smoke away or be connected to a hose to provide mist.
The tools are so fascinating!
During traffic accidents, they can and have the ability to change your hooded car to a Convertible!
Anyone needs their teeth plucked? :X (no not me)
ah… the very important blanket to keep u warm.
Its to protect the person inside in cases they need to break the windscreen.
Is heavy de… (as we can see from the reaction by @molemole Diana)
and these machines… 🙂 one of them can lift up a whole vehicle…
The cab’s really high, enough for a man to comfortably slip on his pants. *wOh!
yah, they dont have the luxury of air-con
This huge truck that would lift us up to the 8th floor! O_O
😀 wanted to stay below and take photo, but was sent up as well.
It was cool~
The speedy machine that will filter through jams. 😀
In life, we make choices,
Some of us choose to serve selflessly
Some of us choose to live without fear
Some of us choose to smile during difficult time.
Some of us choose to party knowing that tomorrow may not come.
Whats important then becomes putting your heart into it, and march forth without looking back.
Life’s short. Live it!
