Calling All Amateur Photographers!

Thursday, July 6 2017 9:31 AM  •   Categorized In Fire Department
Have you seen the Red Wing Fireboat? It’s a functional thing of beauty.  Combing speed and engineering prowess with live-saving ability, the Fireboat holds a special place in the imagination of those who see it.  It also makes a wonderful subject to photograph.  The drama of the machine against the water with Red Wing in the backdrop is a pretty lens-worthy subject.  The Fire Department will be launching the boat at Bay Point Park on Thursday, July 20 at 7 pm, and they invite the public to attend the launch and enjoy a photo-taking opportunity of the Fireboat in action.
