Jerry Lee is a 30 year veteran of the San Francisco Fire Department's central Shops, and has made and restored the city's fleet of 300 wooden fire ladders. SFFD Fire Ladders are made from vertical grain Douglas Fir rails and turned American Hickory rungs, with leather foot and stencil details, and 3 coats of finish.
After overcoming Jerry's reluctance to do a ladder making workshop at WR--he figured nobody would be interested in making a ladder-- we sold out seven classes during which participants made 40 wooden fire ladders. Our opening reception was attended by a 50' ladder truck and Deputy Fire Chief Lombardi led a toast to Jerry and his decades of service to the city.
