A fond farewell to B/C Steve Ruda, who heads for a spot in the Fire Prevention Bureau. And a welcome to Engineer Steve Schrobsdorf who slides into 109’s on the “C.” By the time this issue goes to print, the Heavy Equipment Operators may or may not also be making 109’s their new home. Don’t hold your breath for this move.


Lotto fever spread across the nation as the Mega jackpot soared to over $600 mil- lion a short while ago. The guys at Fire Station 90 on the “B” caught the fever and decided to pool their funds and test the waters. It’s a good thing the tenth man hasn’t been cut from our bare bones task forces, otherwise 90’s would have been a little short. You see, each guy put a dime in the pot and the big spenders bought just one ticket between them. Something about the winning odds being the same for each ticket – right!


When one of the captain at 81’s was awakened by a call on the business phone at 0530 hours on the second Sunday of last March, he thought it might be the news calling for info about the night’s fire or maybe the just the cops again (seems like they’ll never


understand about 24 hour shifts!). Turns out it was the TFC from 88’s cheerfully calling on routine morning business. Did the old A/O mix up the “spring back, fall forward” thing or were the guys at 88’s just messing with the front office clock again?
