Photo of the Week: Lightning over the ladder truck


Calling all fire photographers: FireRescue1 wants to see your pictures! The next time you come across something inspiring, take out the camera and submit it to FireRescue1! Just remember to include your name, agency information and brief background information on the picture.

This week’s Photo of the Week comes from the Santa Rosa (Calif.) Fire Department. A firefighter from the department’s Truck 1 crew captured this shot of a lightning strike while firefighters were at the scene of downed powerlines. The crew was standing by for the power company to arrive when the firefighter took this perfectly-timed photo.
