When not responding to emergency calls our firefighters keep busy with a variety of duties at the local firehouse. Every day the employees that work in these stations are responsible for accomplishing a number of assigned tasks, one of which is station maintenance.
Here you will see members of company 16 A-Shift conducting monthly station maintenance on their bunk room and bathroom/locker room. Since they spend 1/3 of their lives in these facilities, it benefits them to keep them as clean as possible. Often times you will notice that living areas in some stations are comparable to the firefighter's homes in terms of their upkeep.
