An icon lost.

These days, not every fire station comes with the iconic brass pole. Many fire departments across the USA have or are opting instead to install a slide, either of the plastic looping variety or the traditional steel playground-style.┬áSometimes it’s for safety or insurance purposes (sprained ankles and damaged knees), but┬ásometimes it just suits the station better. – USA Today, 3/4/13
