First In, Last out
Many of us here were impacted by the fires in Southern California and to be honest it was a very scary time for our community, but it also shed light on just how incredible our firefighters (and their families) are. While we worried about our home burning down, the spouses and children of firefighters wondered if their family members would make it home. While we stayed far away from the fires in a comfortable hotel, firefighters fought tirelessly taking naps on the ground when they had a moment to spare. My friend was able to return home early on in the fires and sent me a picture at the grocery store of soot covered firefighters that looked like they hadn’t slept for days—that image is forever etched in my mind. Thank you to every firefighter that runs in, when we are running out. You are our heroes.
