The San Francisco Fire Department’s Ladder Shop

In a windy city that has narrow streets and a lot of high voltage power lines, aluminum ladders may not be the best choice for fighting fires. Watch how ladder builder Jerry Lee makes and repairs antique-looking, handmade, wooden ladders for the San Francisco Fire Department, one of few departments in the country to continue using them: The Ladder Shop (2010).

In the archives: more firefighters and more things that are handmade.
