The man I work beside daily (in a 2 person shop) is a firefighter.
We met as co-workers... Now we're friends that work together!
Anyway... In a 24 hour period this last Monday to Tuesday he was called out on 9 fire calls.
I've watched this crew. After battling a fire, and getting back to the station... The work begins! After every call, they have to wash down the trucks and equipment. (We've got 4 stations in our town)
There's a lot going on behind the scenes that a lot of people take for granted or don't know about!
I've known them to go out on a call, put out the fire, clean everything up... Get in bed for 30 minutes and get called out again. It's a dedication that should be recognized, not ridiculed!
I once complained I had no shoes....
Until I met a man with no feet
