40 Pics Showing The Inventories Of Emergency Services From All Over The World

Published 5 years ago

As a kid, everybody loved playing with those playsets featuring emergency vehicles, little toy policemen and firefighters, and all of their equipment. And now it’s time to relive those memories with the latest “knolling” trend that’s gaining popularity among emergency services all around the world.

If you’re not familiar with the term “knolling”, it’s the art of neatly arranging items on a flat surface. The term was coined by Andrew Kromelow, a janitor at Frank Gehry’s furniture fabrication shop who used the technique to arrange his tools, back in 1987. The trend of arranging things remained to this day and was recently picked up by various emergency services who are taking pictures with their equipment neatly laid out, looking more like playsets rather than real people.

Check out the “knolling”-style photographs of emergency services from all over the world in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
