Lego City Fire Brigade was dispatched to what is know known as the Brickston Brush Fire. The call was for a small brush fire that had been sighted by a motorist on the A1 (highway). Engine 5, Engine 3, Battalion 1, Battalion 2, Utility 3, and LCPF all responded to the fire. It was a lot larger than initially reported, it had spread quite far south, and continued spreading until LCFB Utility 3 started wetting the dry grassland that the fire was using as fuel. Engine 3 b
Engine 5 of the Lego City Fire brigade went thru some changes and has only just returned to service. All of these changes are influenced by staff feedback or extra equipment needed to carry. The first cabinet has been changed to hold the medical equipment which has been moved from the cab freeing up valuable space. The cabinet now holds, standard first aid kit, oxygen tank , airways kit, defibrillator, burns kit, maternity kit, and hard suction kit allowing the truck to be
I hope you are all doing well. I have titled this blog "My Helicopter Problem" Because I wanted to cover the fact that my city has 4 helicopters and no aircraft's of any sort. The Helicopters I have are: 1 Air ambulance, 1 police traffic Helicopter, 1 Police special operations helicopter, and 1 private helicopter. I just find them so easy to build and easy to keep in a city where space for a full sized airport is really limited. I will be posting photos of all these very s
Hello everyone, I hope you are all staying safe.
Lego City had a checkpoint running on the off-ramp of the A1, the main road to get into the city for quite a whilst now. AS of today the Lego City border is closed and armed LCPF officers are turning people away. It is now illegal to enter Lego City without written permission from the mayor. I advise all neighboring cities to do the same. So far Lego City hasn't had a single case of COVID 19 but this action has to be taken in order to preven
So I have created another department just for fun. This is Studwood County Police. Their color scheme is a white car with a dark green stripe. So far I have made a Dodge Charger Traffic Unit, Chevrolet Tahoe K9, and Ford-F150 general patrol unit. Their jurisdiction includes Studwood Provincial Park, the smaller town of Studwood, and the surrounding highways.

So I changed my Ford Taurus design to the TTC special Constable design. I also made an arrow board for my Ford Explorer design
See photo below for reference. (I don't own the images)
I am probably going to make a ford crown vi or Ford F150 design
I have started work on a really large Stud.io police station. I will share the first floor as soon as I finish.
Sorry this blog took so long.
My Lego Creations:
As I said in my last blog, here is my Toronto Police Ford Taurus. It has seats for 3 people (2 in the cab and 1 in the rear bench seat) as well as a divider between front and rear seats, front details include a computer, gear shift stick, and multiple gears and buttons resembling the ones used for emergency lighting in the real vehicle. Exterior details include 4 opening doors and an opening boot.

As mentioned in the poll, my next project is a Toronto Police Ford Taurus, which led me too the question, which one does the general EB community like better.
Also, Re-decorating update, I Finished both the Armed Response Vehicles and will soon be doing my favorite, the traffic unit. You can see individual pictures of my redecorating project on the LCPF album so go check that out!! Also, if you missed my last blog, go check it out and let me know what you think of my Ford Explorer.
Finally I have finished my first creation in stud.io, It is a Ford Explorer police interceptor based on the Toronto Police's newest one. I know there are some problems with it (the grill and the wheels) but this is my first attempt at a work in progress. The brake light design is from Sven's Ford Explorer. Aside from that this model is entirely custom. I found it very hard to find wheels and tires in stud.io, any advice would be appreciated.
So if you read my status update you would have a general idea of what this first issue of this blog is about (hint, that project that I spent too much time on 😁). I am currently re-doing all the stickers on the vehicles on my police fleet. I started with just a standard patrol car and I love the way it turned out.
The front. The first time I have ever custom made licence plates and company logos. Also, CGV is the police cars calling code (Charlie, Golf, Victor).
I hope this message finds you well. I've been using a more hands-off approach and letting this community sort of steer itself without much guidance lately and I'm happy to see that, overall, it seems to be working. In recent years, Facebook groups and social media has reduced the frequency of forum visits by users as a whole, and that is true here as well. That being said, I still strongly feel there is something to be said for a dedicated platform that keeps things shared and ea

It's been quite a while since the last BlazingBricks entry. College and work are a deadly combination in the world of Lego, or other hobbies for that matter.
Open Letter to EMS
I'm sure you have all heard about the most recent terror attack in Nice, France. In this blog entry, I'll be discussing what that and other recent attacks mean for us in the world of Fire/EMS. The following copied from a personal post I made several months ago.
Now, these may paint a pretty grim
The crew, of above title fame are those who compose the riding compliment to fire apparatus everywhere. Unlike the popularly held belief held by the public and unfortunately some fire departments, firefighters don’t just jump on and off putting the wet stuff on the red stuff. It is in practice, a good deal more complicated than that. Each firefighter is a time tested technician, specialist and expert in a multitude of felids. From Firefighters and EMTs to Hazardous Materials Techn

We are excited to announce a new feature here on EB called "Feedback" for the community to use.
Now this is not feedback regarding community posts or content, but feedback regarding transactions with other members of the community, such as the purchasing/ trading/ selling of models amongst members.
We have always provided the Buy/ Sell/ Trade forum, but if you are new to the community it could be a bit scary entering into a deal with someone you know nothi
As you probably are already aware, we suffered some technical difficulties over the past couple weeks resulting in the loss of some data from our servers. We, fortunately, were able to restore just about everything, but in the process discovered that although all of our files were back in place, they had become corrupted somehow in the restoration.
There is a silver lining however, as we have an older backup that contains working versions of most, if not all, of th
You've just walked into your fire station on your first day. As an Explorer, Volunteer, or Career firefighter, your career in emergency services begins now. I was there almost 4 years ago. I signed my Explorer Post application, grabbed some gear, and got ready to train for the first time. I knew my responsibilities, I knew the job, and I had the ambition. Here are a few things to expect from your first fire job, and a few things to avoid.

Welcome readers to Blazing Bricks! Before my first column, I'm going to introduce myself to those of you who don't know me. My name is James K, and I've been a part of the LFC since early 2010. Back in the "Good Old Days" of County  Command on MOCpages, studded roofs on trucks, and only a very select few members using any sort of SNOT. I started my fleet with a commercial chassis engine, aerial purchased from NBEA, a Utility unit, and a Battalion unit. I now have 6 departments with 7 unique
I was going to leave this bit till the end, but i thought it should go up top, its quick tips, and might save you from reading my long and possibly geeky and self absorbed little piece. 1: Stabilize, Stabilize, Stabilize. For the love of all that is holy, keep that camera still. Stuff in the frame can move, the camera really shouldn't, it leads to nasty blurry photos that even a dog would pronounce dodgy. Do it by any means, wedge you iPhone up with random objects, use a tripod, use t
