fireboats

Throughout San Francisco, 175 underground cisterns still exist as part of a dedicated fire emergency system developed in 1908. Most of them can be identified by a distinctive brick circle on the road.

Following the 1906 earthquake, the Auxiliary Water Supply System (AWSS) - a separate and distinct water supply system for fire protection use only - was built. The system includes dedicated reservoirs, pump stations, fireboats, cisterns and hydrants. The cisterns are disconnected from the network, with no pipes, in the event of major damage to the distribution system.

Y Por Eso Rompímos / Why We Broke Up - Daniel Handler.

Te entrego esta caja, Ed.Adentro está todo.Las tapitas de las primeras cervezas que compartimos, el boleto de cine para ver la película en la que nos dimos nuestro primer beso, aquella nota tuya que significó tanto para mí, una caja de cerillos ahora vacía…Te devuelvo la caja y todos los recuerdos que contiene, Ed. Aquí la tienes. Toda nuestra historia. Toda la historia de por qué rompimos. 

Maira Kalman ha escrito e ilustrado libros para adultos y niños, entre los que destacan And the Pursuit of Happiness, The Principles of Uncertainty, 13 Words y Fireboat. A Kalman le rompieron el corazón dos veces durante el instituto, primero fue un chico que se parecía a Bob Dylan y después otro que se parecía a Leonard Cohen.

Order something cool and send it to your nearest firestation on amazon! You have no idea how much they’ll appreciate it!

1700+ gallons per minute. Our town is testing the fire boat for its annual certification. 60 degrees out, sunny, and February 1. I love this town #fireboat #firehouse #seaside #ctvisit #mysticct #mystic #riverlife (at Downtown Mystic CT)

Today we tested the Phoenix Fireboat’s capability to pump bay water into the Auxiliary Water Supply System for the first time in history. Nice to know we have this alternative for fire fighting during an emergency!

Morning folk! This was taken from the lighthouse at TBW, my favourite type of river boat, the LFB 🚒fireboat, was going by and I had to get a shot of that. (at Trinity Buoy Wharf)
