Rehab 6 is a odd name, yet a very interesting history.
I have been involved with Knight Township Fire Department for quite a while, and they have two stations. Company 6 and Company 7. I named the pit Rehab 6 because of Company 6, following the name pattern of apparatus: 6 Engine, 6 Rescue 6, etc.
I have worked with several fire departments, and can say that I am VERY PROUD of the entire Knight Township Fire department.
Sadly, December 31, 2010 Knight Township Fire Department had to close its doors forever, due to lack of funding. I am hoping that with Rehab 6, the Department can continue to live on.
** Special Note **
The first trip Rehab 6 made was to a Goodbye, fair well, and Amen party for my brothers at Knight Fire.
REHAB 6 | SMOKE EATERS IS THE TEAM NAME AND PIT NAME FOR THE BBQ SMOKER. THE PIT IS A 350 GALLON TANK WITH AN OFFSET FIREBOX.
THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER GADGETS ON IT, AND THE NEAT PART IS THAT IT IS MADE OF 95% RECYCLED MATERIAL. THE ONLY NEW ITEMS ON IT ARE THE POP RIVETS AND ELECTRICAL WIRE.
WHEN REHAB 6 IS FINISHED, I WILL GO INTO ALL KINDS OF NEAT DETAILS ABOUT IT.
*** NOTE OF SPECIAL INTEREST ****
WHILE WORKING ON THE PROJECT, A VERRY LONG FRIEND OF THE FAMILY SUDDENLY PASSED AWAY. IT WAS COMPLETELY UNEXPECTED. THIS WOMAN KNEW MY FAMILY AND ME ALL MY LIFE. IN FACT, SHE WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SEE ME WHEN I WAS BROUGHT HOME FOR THE FIRST TIME, TO TELL HOW LONG SHE WAS KNOWN. AFTER HEAVY THOUGHTS, I WOULD LIKE IT TO BE KNOWN THAT THIS SMOKER IS MADE IN MEMORY OF HER HONOR, JOAN PEACRCY.
