    As a rookie, my first house was Station 51 when, at that time, it was located on Seward St in Hollywood. Dan was assigned there and he lived in Topanga Canyon which we all thought was WAY OUT in the Valley. We had a triple and a booster tank for apparatus and Dan liked to go “Lot Burning” on the booster tank with Public Works personnel. A new “story” would return each day about the adventures of burning with Public Works.

    Dan was fun to work with and took time to work with the rookies on all three shifts. God speed my friend, may the Lord be with you.

      Bob, Thanks for taking the time to share your memory of my dad. I remember visiting his station in Hollywood (maybe that was 51?). I recall he let my brother and I sit in the engine while he sounded the siren and let us slide down the pole (starting from as high as he could lift us). I also recall one visit when the crew caught someone stripping a stolen bicycle down in back of the station. I don’t quite recall the cross streets, but remember it was near Vine. Does any of that sound familiar? Like it may have been your station?
      I never heard stories about “lot burning” with Public Works. Could you share what that activity means? Was it some form of weed abatement? Again, thanks for sharing…and hope all is well with you.
