    Fireman corner .

    Since the boys in blue have a special place, I figure I would throw this up there.


    30 years ago this month, a building collapsed in Bridgeport Connecticut and over 30 construction workers were trapped, I worked with several of those guys and raced down to start pulling people out.....28 construction workers didn't make it out.

    Captain John Fanning from hazmat one in New York came to Bridgeport with a couple of guys from the firehouse, and assisted in the recovery operation for the 10 days it took to get everyone out.

    Captain John Fanning became battalion chief and was called to the twin towers on 9/11, I believe John learned so much during those 10 days of a massive rescue operation, and I know he passed it on....he was killed on 911.

    Today I finally got the chance to go pay my respects to the firehouse hazmat one ....I got to share stories of that time in Bridgeport to his fellow firefighters some who fought hard on that day to recover their Brothers......

    In life it's about respect!!! IMG_1377.JPG

    And on the 23rd of this month I will go pay my respects to my fallen brothers, Who died at L'Ambiance Plaza in Bridgeport. 30 yrs ago

    And thank you to all the firemen who save our ass when we do something stupid!

    What? We all know they found a job with all the work taken out of it and EMS stands for Earn Money Sleeping...

    Nah, was a hose-dragger myself for a while and traded the nozzle in for six-shooter (I am old-school) and complained about where they park the trucks. Currently in the med-evac biz and just spent two nights housed with them and those tones drop all night long...

    Keep up the good work Boys and Gals in Red and everyone loves a Fireman...

    So, you guys know why God created cops, right?

    The above is not intended to offend anyone, or to downplay @snobnd's honoring of firefighters.

    I'm probably not the best person to answer that question, since I have ruffled a few feathers in cop corner.

    Well, friend, it's so your firefighters could have heroes, too.

    (but I bet Fb and VVB already knew that...)

    I've been able to work with our fire dept many times. Getting to climb up the big ladder truck ladder looking for burglary suspects was a pretty cool thing to do.

    I too got to enjoy the pleasure of helping them get their firebreak bulldozers to and from fires deep in the woods and on couple occasions warning them of fast approaching situations that they may wish to avoid. Being I was State Certifed as one, I appreciate what they do...
