One of the Lac La Biche engine crews in Alberta answered the question, “What is in my fire truck?”.

This could be a challenge to other wildland fire crews. Send us YOUR photo.

We will add more entries in what is being called the Tetris Challenge here:

  1. Dangit Bill. You’re stealing my thunder. We just did one of these at my shop (the one you used to work at) last week. I was going to edit it and throw it out on the web tomorrow.

    1. Firemen! They work in the dirt and wear a shirt that’s sweaty and black with soot. And they deliver … smiles!
      Good on ya!
      Rob.

  2. Several emergency response agencies and various military units from around the world have been posting these lately. Google “tetris challenge” for more examples. Reminds me of 80’s action figure playsets.

    Would be great to see some wildland engines represented, or maybe some crew buggies!

  3. Wow, good to know and well presented. Can’t imagine how to find everything you need in the action of fire. They have to be very organized. Thanks for showing us photos and stay safe!
