Where there is smoke...

there are pancakes, and Muskoka Lakes firefighters!

I know that some of my followers like equipment, and this is a post for those things!

We had such a nice treat visiting the Milford Bay Firefighters. Friendly folks, raising money.

 They were cooking up a storm. On cookers they had made and/or rebuilt themselves.

Come on, baby, light my fire...

Yes, Milford Bay has female volunteers, too. I know you were asking.

And, yes, he who dies with the most tools wins. They have great equipment.

In Muskoka, of course, you need snowmobiles, special items to get you onto remote roads, because you never know where you have to fight a fire!

Food, coffee, and lots of fun.
These folks word so hard in our communities all over the province.

I bow low in honour!

It was just a few days ago that many of our Bala firefighters were out. They called in another crew from Foote's Bay. Bless them all!

Did you hear them?

Many out at THAT event! There was a fire, and a false alarm, all at the same time.

I feel safe with these young men and women out there.

It is hard to believe that in the 'good old days' they would not allow women to fight fires.

We had great pancakes and sausages! By the time we had arrived, at 1 p.m., they had served 260 people. Well done guys!

It is great for a community to come out as support those that serve. Thanks for sharing. - Margy
