Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Fire Prevention

Fire Prevention

My entry for the challenge this week is like a TV station in the non rating season. Repeat, repeat, repeat.  I was not able to go out and photograph anything new so instead I have taken some photos that I have used before and done something different with them.

Fire Engines and Fire Stations

TheTFS, (Tasmania Fire Service) is a big part of the local community. As well as attending local fires at all hours the volunteer crews participate in community events like the Christmas parade, educate the public about bushfire safety and carry out burn offs or bushfire prone areas. The first few pictures were taken in Geeveston.

The old and the new. A modern fire engine at the Christmas parade in Geeveston  and the volunteers outside the fire station. The third photo is of a vintage truck I saw tucked away in an old apple shed on my walk the other week. The fourth one is the local radio station, Huon FM and is included because this building is the old Geeveston Fire Station. It is right next door to the new one. Since I took this photo a few years ago the building has been painted cream and looks a bit less like a fire station.
