I was home cooking dinner when I get a phone call asking me what’s going on. Since I’m not a news blog, I have trouble scooping anyone, even when something newsworthy happens on the beach near my house: http://www2.wsav.com/sav/news/local/lowcountry/article/reports_plane_lands_on_hilton_head_beach/106174/
I am a firefighter because I literally grew up in a firehouse. My grandfather was a firefighter’s firefighter. His nickname was “Smokey”. He was the Chief Fire Marshal in Montgomery County, PA up until his death in 1981. My uncles and my father all became firefighters as a result of his influence; not just firefighters but leaders in their field. I can’t think of anything else I’d rather be.
