VIDEO: Remember the good ‘ol days when kids collected and traded baseball cards?
A few folks at the Amarillo Fire Department remember those days too. But they’re version of trading cards features their fire engines and trucks.
These cards are helping highlight our local heroes and connecting them with our local kids.
Amarillo Fire Department Community Liaison Jeff Justus says, “So I used to ride a fire truck with one of the retirees, and he always carried around Fire Department fire truck trading cards, they weren’t our trucks, but they were just generic, borrow trading cards to give the kids and I always thought it’d be cool if we had some for our fire trucks.”
Actually, Jeff Justus thought the trading cards were a really cool idea.
So when he started handling community relations for the Amarillo Fire Department he brought the idea to life.
