Thursday is officially the beginning of the holiday season, and everyone is getting busy. Tomorrow some of the world will be sitting down and eating Thanksgiving dinner with their families, with not a care in the world. However in cities, towns, and counties everywhere firefighters will be spending time away from their families standing watch and ready to act just like every other day of the year. While we will eat, watch football, and enjoy our time with our second family it is still a sacrifice. The video below is from one of my favorite fire department movies “Brotherhood” in it they show all of the good (ribbing, respect, and good food), and bad (getting a call) that goes along with a Firehouse Thanksgiving. So to all of those working your shift tomorrow stay safe, and hopefully you will be in quarters most of the day. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
