THANK GOD THEY WENT TO VACANTS STAY OUTSIDE THE LAST I READ PHILLY HAS A PROBLEM ALSO WITH VACANTS

MANY F'S HAV BEEN IKNJURED AND KILLED IN VACANTS FOR NO REASON MY FFIENND IN CAMDN SAYS THERE MIGHT BE A STREET PERSON IN THERE AND I ASKED EVERY FIND ONE WELL NO THEY ARE GONE BEFORE WE EVEN KNOW ABOUT THE FIRE. AT LEAST IN PHILLY THEY TEAR DOWN MANY DANGEROUS ONES LIKE WALL MISSING ETC
 
The first week of October I was fortunate enough to have done a 48 hr ride along with the men of Squad 6 on the East side of Detroit. Total we had 5 structure fires, and 4 false alarms in two days. The guys on both shifts I cannot say enough about. They appeared in high spirits and were willing to share their knowledge on any topic. These guys were the best of the best. I have never seen a fire attack so aggressive and with precision, and I walked away learning a lot. So if you are a certified firefighter, I would encourage anyone to take advantage of the City of Detroit allowing you to do this. Here are just some of the shots I took. And yes they let you work!!
