Why do firefighters wash their fire engines so frequently? πŸš’πŸ§Ό

Fire service culture values maintaining a pristine appearance for both firefighters and their equipment. Through regular cleaning, firefighters demonstrate their commitment to professionalism and pride in their work.

Furthermore, ensuring that our equipment remains in optimal condition is integral to our professionalism. Regular washing of fire engines serves to uphold performance and safety standards by eliminating dirt, contaminants, and debris that could lead to corrosion. This practice ultimately enhances the longevity and reliability of our apparatus, ensuring we're always prepared to fulfill our duties effectively.

Thank you all Graham Fire & Rescue, for what you do for us all. Stay safe! β€οΈπŸ™πŸ™β€οΈ

As a taxpayer we should all appreciate that they keep the apparatus clean and in good condition.

There was a guy in my hometown that owned a garbage collection business with four trash trucks. The crew of each trick was required to pressure wash the truck at the end of every day, including the inside of the back. Trucks were pristine. Guy's philosophy was two fold; the trucks were a huge capital investment for him that he wanted to protect; and his name was on the side of the trucks and therefore an extension of him. He did not want to be seen as "a trashman", but rather as a savvy business man. Glad to see all Pierce County firefighters taking the same pride in their equipment.

This practice should spill over onto other government departments….

Its called make work projects ya can't be sitting on the taxpayers dime all of the time

Taking pride of what they got. We wash our after every call.

It only makes sense that when Taylor Swift launches a new album, we do a post pretending to do the same. 🎢

While Taylor sings about love, loss, pain, growth, and transformation, we tend to focus more on the hotter side of things… like fire.

So, now that we have your attention:
πŸš’ Always pull right for sirens and lights
πŸ’€ Close your door before going to sleep
🚨 Test your smoke and CO alarms monthly, and replace the batteries every 6 months
πŸ”₯ Create and practice a home fire escape plan

Our personal protective equipment ensures our safety but adds a large amount of weight to an already physically intensive job. Our firefighters train hard to meet these fitness demands daily. Happy National Exercise Day! πŸ’ͺ ... See MoreSee Less
