Long Description:
"The 8’ tall columns bases are articulated like the equipment fittings
found on the rigs and hydrants. On the stainless steel columns are
etched images of firefighters and historic firefighters from cultures
from throughout history: 1) Wildland firefighter, 2) Explorers (youth
firefighter program), 3) Vigiles Urbani (the first organized fire brigade
of Europe), 4) Knight of Malta (where the current Maltese cross on
firefighters emblem originated), 5) Edo Firefighter (early Japanese
firefighter) 6) Sapeurs-Pompiers (the first professional firefighters
from the French Army of the 19th century). Each column is divided
into three parts that can be turned individually, like a section of a mix
‘n match puzzle so that the figures can be morphed into any number
of combinations. " (visit link)
