WHVFC Becomes WHFRE, a Career Department - 02/01/2018
Over the last couple of months I have shifted some of my focus from building out Washington Heights into a massive volunteer fire department, and have began downsizing much like I did several years ago. Just like I did in the past, I have cut back from ten stations to five, with the remaining rigs being scrapped or sold to other departments in the LFC. Included in this new cut is to form Washington Heights into a more "Central Hub" career fire department with smaller outlying towns have rural/suburban volunteer and combination fire departments, in addition to being heavily involved in the resureted Studington Fire-Rescue group.
I personally have not had a full-time "City" department ever before, and I thought it would be interesting to try out and model off of a busy, middle class department. There are still some changes to come in apparatus and layouts (Including cuts and additions), as well as adding a couple more smaller rural and industrial departments to the roster, so stay tuned for that.
All of the town and information and apparatus photographs for the newly formed departments can be found under the "Area Departments" tab on the left menu for your viewing pleasure.
As always, best regards!

Michael P, owner of Castle Beach Fire and Lego Angeles, has truly outdone himself by starting this blog. The site showcases many well known and talented builders throughout the LFC by interviews and questionnaires, apparatus walk arounds, and news posts. One of the best features about this site is the connection and featuring of some of the founding members of the Lego Fire Community such as Tom D, Paul Bock, and Collin Renner. If you have a free chance, please look through! You won't be disappointed.
