We once had a pretty salty guy on the job tell us,”You’ll never be able to explain exactly what you do to people that aren’t in the fire service, even your family may not quite understand. Firefighters understand but others may never understand.” And he was right, no one may ever understand all the things you do or have to do to make our job look simple. It’s not a simple job and there’s a million details that go into the success of a firefighter, a company, a firehouse. Success is in the details, and we may forever be the only ones that understand how vital each detail is. Own your spot, sweat the details, enjoy the job.
