A day at the Utah State Firefighters Museum with a retired Fire Chief Robert Webster.

Today I met up with retired Fire Chief Robert Webster for a stroll down memory lane.  I was privy to some pretty cool fire fighting stories that's for sure.  We got to check out the Ford fire truck he drove from Oklahoma City to Riverton, Utah.  Robert said he was sure he could still get water out of that truck today!  It was so cool to experience this awesome machine with someone who knew it well.  He showed me a scratch in the rear quarter panel that came with a story about a young fireman and a garage door.  How cool is that scratch now?  Robert was very grateful that so many great pieces of history are being kept alive in the Utah State Firefighters Museum.

Robert showed me the breathing apparatus he started with.  He said "If you ever ran out of air you'd better shove this canister up under your arm because that's the only way you will be able to breathe."  On one of the newer versions he showed me how a bell would ding when you were almost out of air.  I bet that was one scary sounding bell.
