New Firefighter in the family

I am very proud to announce that there is a new Firefighter in my family. Lil’qer , my youngest daughter Stephanie, completed her FF1 live burn today. She is a junior firefighter with my volunteer company and we are the first father daughter members and only the 3rd female member.

She takes the written and practical test on Wednesday, so wish her luck. I was lucky enough to have the day off between work days and got to be her team instructor. Here are a few pictures from the day. Hope you like.

Way to go Stephanie! Our department here is one of a few that has a junior fire fighter program on the island. We are alos one of the few that has a waiting list of people trying to get into the department. I feel it is because our "Smokeaters" are trained as well as they are and have already started the process of becoming firefighters, so when they turn 18 thay are ready to go!My son just got a phone cal from his adviser last night that he too passed his fire fighter 1 class.
