Station 10's Ladder Table
Station 10 has one of the nicest stations inside and out at IFD. The crews here donated their time, effort and money tocompletely repaint and remodel their large station house. However, maybe the most unique feature is the 10's dinner table. This gigantic table was made from an old bowling alley lane from Chicago. It was refinished and mounted on a unique ladder and diamond-plate base. The final touch is a hand painted and airbrushed flame logo for the Brightwood Brigade. Very sharp!!!
