Off the beaten track …

Something rather unusual for the site:

Larry Shapiro has an abundance of Firehouse, Fire Engineering, and Fire Apparatus magazines to dispose of. Before sending them to the recycling station, he wonders if any of our readers would be interested in rescuing them?

Firehouse coverage, though not inclusive, is from 2003-2010, Fire Engineering is 2010-2011, Fire Apparatus is 2002-2006

If you’re interested, send an email to the webmaster and he’ll hook you up.
