But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.

Bennett Ambulance


Noble Ambulance


Then EMTS came into play

Some former Monroe City FD equipment will be going on display at the Firefighter's Museum up in Bay City although it took some interesting twists and turns to get there!

I thought that pic was taken out of the movie Reefer Madness showing what happens to Firefighters who smoke pot on the job.

You should get a copy of that photo printed and sent to the museum.  I'm sure it would add some authenticity to the display!

Just a note for anyone who has not followed this thread our or local history board...

The building the firefighter is jumping out of wast the 'east side' fire station on East First street.  The building to the left was the Monroe Auto Equipment factory.  Both buildings have been demolished in the last few years and are documented elsewhere on the History Board.

Great Idea


Here's their contact info.  I actually know Jimmy (the clown) Dobson from my early days in Bay City although I haven't seen him in over 30 years.

I see they're actually having a golf outing on Wednesday

 so maybe you can get a group together and just drive the picture up there.  I know...   probably pretty short notice but maybe put them on your schedule for next year ;) ;) ;)

I think they are only open on Saturdays.  Every time I go there, they are closed for one reason or another.

That's good to know.  One of these days I plan to take a road trip up that way and stop by.  Guess I'll call ahead!
