Red, White, & Yellow: Firetrucks From Around The World

Challenge #18 in the Colours & Shades: The World I Know series. Hosted by Stormcastle.
Challenge has finished
The concept for this challenge is fairly simple: submit your best pictures of a firetruck. It can be at the scene of a fire... sitting at the fire station... in a parade... or hitting the drive-thru window. Whatever it is, the firetruck MUST be the central focus of the photo.
