Delivery via the World Wide Web and Distribution of High Quality Media.
Preserve the History and Promote the Tradition of "THE FIRE DEPARTMENT".
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 several 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, paramedics and EMT's.
Firefighters, today, do a lot more than just "put the wet stuff on the red stuff"!
OUR NEW LOOK
We have recently "rolled out" a new version of the website; more compatible with all the devices we use these days, i.e. tablets and cell phones, etc. We hope you like the new look, but if you prefer the "old site", please click on the link below. This new version is still a "work-in-progress" as we continue to move items over to this platform. Thank you for your patience...and as always: thank you for visiting.
