It didn't follow me home but was merely observed. The Washington State Ferries still require a certain number of fire stations that must include a fire axe. The MV Tokitae on the Mukilteo-Clinton run is outfitted with Council fire axes. Pleased to see this. Puget Sound area commuter trains are outfitted with generic fire axes.
You have no idea how much it pleases me to see pick head axes are still in use. I know they're less useful when used in conjunction with halligans, but that doesn't mean they're worth phasing out in favor of flat axes.
