With the recent posts and story about "Bert" the station mascot at the Salisbury Fire Department many years ago, it would be remiss of me to not mention other mascots the Department has had. "Boots" was Station 2,s dalmatian mascot at on the corner of Brown & Naylor Sts. from 1968 to 1980. After Boots passed another dalmatian was obtained. "Spanner" served from 1981 to 1990. Boots and Spanner are in a place of honor at Station 2 today located near the base of the flagpoles. Due to changes in staffing it was decided the time was not right for another live in mascot. Maybe in the future that will change and a dalmatian will once again grace the department and entertain the children that visit. Possibly I can find some photos of Boots & Spanner and udate this post a little later
