Millburn Fire Department Open House 2012

Car fire! Well, they set the car on fire themselves, so I dunno if it counts.

The Millburn Fire Department had its 15th annual open house today, where it opens its doors to the curious public, and puts on demonstrations of the firefighters’ firefighting prowess.

Extinguishing a car fire was their last demo. (I was downwind of the smoke, and I smelled like a cigarette for the rest of the day. Still do, actually.)

Firefighting is one of those things that I’m kind of in awe that people actually DO. I’m terrified of everything, and I can’t IMAGINE voluntarily waltzing into an exploding/ collapsing/ flame-filled death trap, even if it is for a great reason.
