    Hey Bill, do you have the classic shot of the 3 remaining TDA's in service in Nassau county... from Elmont's wet down in the book?

    No but i had considered putting that photo in. One of the hardest parts of putting together this book was making the decisions on what pictures to put in and what not to. I have so much stuff that i wish i could put it all in. The only pictures i have of FD Trucks in the book are (as most of you know that there are only 5 of them left in nassau county) are of the ones i took > Mack tower ladder group shot.

    This book has 93 color pictures in it and 62 of them are of fires.
    A few of accidents and a few group shots of local FD companys.
    I have the classic picture of Uniondale's engine at a job where they broke the windows of a car (that was parked in front of a hydrant) to hook up for water. Oh and yes i have a Picture of George Bush.

    I have PM all of you but i wanted to say in this thread THANK YOU all for ordering my book. I really hope you enjoy it as much as i have enjoyed being part of what you all do! As i have always said "Be safe and watch the collapse zone!
