A (in)human look at the Fire Service and what comes after
Thursday, July 28, 2011
My oldest kid is frighteningly like me in many ways. Some good, some bad. I was not surprised when these showed up in my text que a few days ago.
I am not sure of the sequence or the details, but I know that he was on his way to/from his girlfriends house when they spotted this brush fire. He, being the Schmoe that he is, used his phone camera and snapped these shots.
Not too bad for cel-phone shots, besides I cannot be critical. He has caught more fire action than I have over the past few weeks!
My name is Schmoe, I am a retired Fire Captain from a "kind of big" municipal fire department that protects a wide range of risks. I am a little past fifty and spent thirty years on the job. I have been happily married for almost as long and have two young adult sons.
