Engine 1 - on a rainy day (HLF 16/12)
Engine 1 of the Schwelm FD. It has a 1600 litres tank (422 gal.) with a 1200 l/min pump (317 gal./min). It has equipment for two crews/groups (each 1/8/9) as also technical equipment ( hydraulic rescue tools, etc.).
We were alarmed to a fire alarm in a youth centre, the second alarm was to abort - so I rode directly to the scene ( yes,... my bike - forgot to take it out of the picture)...
Well, I decided s/c 'cos the light wasn't that good, good enough for a longer expourse (for the flash/beacon lights), but not for the colors in the background - a typical rainy and cloudy day of fall....
