Welcome to FIREPIX21 Photography!! My name is Alex M. Poitevien Jr. I am a Lieutenant with the City of Plantation Fire Rescue just outside of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. My department is classified as a combination department, part volunteer with paid staff and EMS. Aside of my profession, I am a Fire Apparatus Photographer. Almost all of my photography is based out of South Florida but I frequently travel to Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. My photography has been featured in numerous locations, including; Hall-Mark Fire Apparatus Website & Calendar, Fire Apparatus Journal, Custom All-Wheel-Drive Fire Apparatus Vol. II (by Lukas Alexander Pristovnik), CHOICEFIRE Trading Cards, FloridaFireTrucks (on facebook) and various other websites.
Feel free to like, comment and/or discuss any of the photos in the galleries below. Enjoy!!
