Whether you realize it, or not, no matter where you are right now, there's a dedicated team of professional men and women ready to respond to your call for help. It might be a fire, maybe a medical emergency or a motor vehicle crash. In most locations in the United States, and around the world, this team will be there within minutes of your call. Many of these men and women chose this profession as a full time career...many more are volunteers: their payment is the mere satisfaction of helping others in a time of dire need.This website is dedicated to all firefighters, EMT's and paramedics, no matter where YOU are right now...waiting for the next "TONE-OUT"...never quite sure what the "dispatch" will bring...but always ready for the call!
WELCOME and THANK YOU for visiting onlyREDtrucks! My name is Larry Carlson. I live in Rockford, Illinois (USA). I have always had an interest in the Fire Service. While attending college in upstate New York, I was a member of the Genesee Valley Fire Department. I started this website a few years ago as an opportunity to "distribute" some of my videos and photos in an attempt to educate the general public a little more about firefighters, fire departments, etc. Take your time and browse through the pages on this site. Move your cursor over all the photos to see what more you can find.
My interest and participation continues to grow, especially now that I have two daughters involved with the Fire Service: One is a full time EMT/Firefighter/Paramedic Program Co-ordinator with Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC). She deserves all the credit for the naming of this site, since I "hi-jacked" her email name. The other is a Firefighter/Paramedic and Instructor in the St. Louis Area.
Capture and Portray the Challenges Firefighters face on a daily basis
Delivery via the World Wide Web and Distribution of High Quality Media
