Juan Berenguer, as simple as it is with this picture on a piece of cardboard, has actually motivated me to get back to understanding why I love the fire service so much. There are so many things that seem to pull a firefighter away from what the truth about the fire service today. Let’s keep the most important things the most important things. Let’s BE LIKE JUAN. Love the job, cherish your time on the job, earn your spot, be professional, and the hell with anything that’s keeping us from doing the right thing.
So, my question is this; What will we do with the inheritance we want to give to our families? (Our families and our firehouse families) What will we do with our most prized possession, our time? Step one is to stop taking it for granted.
