Photo by Dave Warner – Firefighter Chad Malley proves that he can climb just about anything, whether it’s on fire or not.  He’s on top of City Hall and the fire department, resetting the tension in the ropes and weight system that still works the city’s fire alarm. That whistle was actually installed in the old station on the corner in 1908 and moved to City Hall along with the fire alarm system.
