    Re: wreck

    I had an employee once that probably would be glad to see you around.

    Somebody ran into him in the rain and that car smashed into the bridge rail and stopped. His pickup didn't stop, jumped the rail, and landed below on all four wheels within 10 feet of the river bank. One of the calls he made was to his wife, who came down the bank to stay with him. His back was cracked painfully.

    The cops investigated the accident in the rain on the bridge. No one even looked for him or his truck! Eventually, him and his wife dragged theirselves up the bank to her car and found that everyone was gone! They had to call the cops back!

    Nice job, Rod. They might never tell you, but they'll remember you were there.

    Re: wreck

    Thanks Paul ,, just doing my voluteer job ,, i hate seeing people in pain and distress ,, but i did not get into the FD to run around with a radio and a shirt with FD on it ,, i did it to help people ,, kinda like my rv buss,,, i do it for money ,, yea ,, but if i can fix a prob without charging ,, i feel better ,, the adreline rush of pulling a child from a burning house is one that most will never forget ,, but the ones that haunt u (not a pun due haloween) is the ones that u pulled out after the fire or wreck was over ,,, they stick with u...
    But u gotta go on and live u'r life one day at a time ,, and thank the good lord above that he still has u around to perform these task ,, be it a rv repair for free or a hurt person in a wreck,,, i feel better knowing i did TRY to help ...

    Thanks Rod for being there. As a retire chief officer of 35 years of service and retired at age 57. I have never met such dedicated people as fire fighters. who never look at the danger for themselves but how to save /help those in need. Although I have never met you it give great pleasure to call you a brother. being a fire fighter is like being a Marine that is ONCE A FIRE FIGHTER ALWAYS A FIRE FIGHTER!!!!!!

    GOD BLESS YOU

    The first class I ever taught was "Physics for Firefighters." It was a course offered through the local community college for a group of professional firefighters who were going for their associates degree. I taught the course (2 semesters) in the main firehouse and typically 1/3 of my students were on duty. It was always amazing to be there when the alarm sounded. The dedication and professionalism of the men and women I worked with for that year never ceased to amaze me.

    One evening, the engine company came back to the house after a call for a house fire. They had lost a child in the fire and were devastated. You would have thought every person in the room had just lost a personal child.

    I admire and appreciate the people like you 730 and H2H1 who put their lives on the line every day so that others stand a better chance at having a long, quality life. THANKS!

    RE: wreck

    hey 730,(Rod) I wasn't patting you on the back or feeding an ego. Like I said as a chief officer I know those who need attention and I didn't put you in that group. As a volunteer in fire service that in it self speak highly of you. keep up the good work and a pat on the back or a much appreciated thanks will just blow you away. God Bless---Hollies
