Six firefighters from Baldwin Independent Fire Company No. 1 are heading back to Hackleburg, AL, from June 9-12 to deliver fire equipment and to help rebuild an area ravaged by tornadoes in the spring of 2011.
One of the six fighters—Brian Zimmerman—will blog from Alabama to keep the Baldwin Borough community abreast of the trip.
Day 4 in Hackleburg meant that it was time to say goodbye. We got up early and started to pack our trucks for a long, 12-hour drive back to Pittsburgh.
Many of the members of the Hackleburg Fire Department and their wives wished us a tearful goodbye.
They were so thankful of everything that we did for them once again. But after all of the goodbyes, it was time to hit the road.
The Baldwin boys arrived back in Pittsburgh at around 11:30 on Tuesday night.
