03/22/11 148 W, 1 I - + 7 - 7 Postcard From DC

Left to right, top to bottom. Two ambulances apparently permanently staged at the United States Capitol building. Placards on the dash read "House" in other and "Senate" in the other. Connected with shore lines for permanent starting power. Don't know if medical personnel are in the building at all times. Next a big, honkin' haz-mat unit operated by the USCP. Saw staged at two different locations over two different days. Engine running, but otherwise empty. Guess it's a stand-by unit. See more such units. Next is DCFD Rescue 1 responding to an elevator rescue at Ford's theater. Across the street from that famous building is, of course, Honest Abe's Souvenirs. Finally, a mobile cosmetic unit on the Mall, where Mr. and Mrs. Newt Gingrich were filming what looked like a television commercial. More photos of all forthcoming. Click to enlarge:
