More fires may have been fought here than in the entire city
The image from the article below has me thinking that so much of our culture, our conversation, is developed around the kitchen table. The wealth of informal education and a great deal of humor surrounds our meals.The FireRescue Magazine article "Camaraderie in the Firehouse" by Stephen Marsar (I know, I know…) talks about how face-to-face conversation can make a big difference in the attitudes in your house.
So let us know how your house is a "firehouse" and not just a place to work. Send us photos of your shift, your crew at the kitchen table, to our Facebook page. Capture a meal, a discussion, a drill, whatever happens at the table that says "this is the best job in the world!" Be sure to share some details and we'll post them on the site.
Thanks, and "Expect Fire"
