A 4:30 wake up call

Nothing like springing out of bed at 4:30 in the morning after getting a good 1.5 hours of sleep and running to this.

I love my job.

Bill, Where do you keep your turnout gear? ... Right by the outside door?...By the bed? Or (can't remember).... do you sleep at the firehouse when on duty?


Anyway. Way to knock it down bud.

"No one was injured." That's the important part.

Right now I am an Engine Operator. I keep my gear behind the drivers seat except at night. I keep my bunker pants at the end of the bed. It makes for a quicker response that way.

Greg, I wasnt complaining just braggin. I realy do love my job.

Larry, I'll just ignore you.
