Huntsville Fire Department Nostalgia
HFD Photo Gallery
When I joined the fire department in 1985, it was one of the proudest moments in my life. Over the years, with the support of Randy Shinn, Terry Long, and a host of others, I worked hard to transform us into an interior attack team. I can only hope the next generation of HFD members love her as much as we did.

Battling the Ridgeway Apartment Fire
On the surveillance video, the fire had been burning for at least 30 minutes before we were notified. The fire had breeched into the common attic space and spread across all of the upstairs apartments.
