Although not Ladder 54 action oriented, several members / firefighters of Ladder 54 were at the 1989 California Earthquake in the San Francisco bay and Oakland California. There was some interest about the rescues (and recoveries) on Interstate I880 to I80 cypress structure freeway collapse in Oakland after the earthquake so we put these on here.

The 1989 San Francisco Bay earthquake photos.
In 1989 two Ladder54 firefighters arrived in the bay area for heavy rescue instructor training with Oakland and other bay area firefighters. The photos are of the Cypress collapse on I-880 in Oakland to I-80 after the earthquake. These are some of the pictures. Several were taken right after rescues and during aftershocks of the quake. Many of the photos are too gruesome to publicly show (as you can imagine).
