Cocoa Beach F.D. – Me and my favorite truck 1972. Taken with a Yashica TL Electro X on Kodak Ektachrome.

While attending college at nearby Hydrospace Technical Institute (H.T.I.) which was the oceanographic tech school of the Florida Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) I was able to train as a volunteer firefighter with the Cocoa Beach Fire Department, Florida. It was an extremely enjoyable time in my life – 18 years old, SCUBA diving and surfing almost every day and studying a subject I was interested in. I appreciated the time the professional firefighters took to train us and I think they enjoyed the interaction with those hippie boys from school. By the way, the locals referred to H.T.I. as the “Hippie Training Institute”.
