Memorial dedicated to the firefighters and EMTs.
In 1914 Carlton Maxim built his first

The Maxim Motor Company built many fire
engines over the
years and developed a strong loyalty.
The company closed its doors in 1989.
On September 20, 2014, approximately 40
Maxim fire trucks

Vehicles in North Attleboro, MA.
"World Trade Center 2001"
I took this photo of the World Trade Center in the summer of 2001
just weeks before the September 11, 2001 collapse of the twin towers.
The family visited the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building that
trip, figuring we could always do the WTC another time. Little did we know....
God Bless the USA!

No Snow down there!
An engineered floor joist on a construction site.
Made up of particle board!
How long would this support the weight of firefighters under fire conditions?
You would never guess this is holding up the addition it now does!
Be Careful out there!
