 "Pole-Sliding Sam" was the only cat in the world who could slide down a 20 foot brass fire pole.

    He came to Station #6, a tiger stripped, yellow-eyed kitten and became their mascot for six years. Sam was interviewed on television, featured on magazine covers, in newspapers, and "Ripley's Believe It or Not".

    In 1964, Station #6 moved to a one story building without a pole and Sam disappeared, never to be seen again.

    Right is a photo of Sam in action.
