Fires, Prevention and Harrison Ford!?

Let me start by saying (or shouting) THIS WEEK WAS SO EXCITING!! Let's start with the end of last week and the first fire scene Matt was called to. It was the old club Inferno (ironic lol).

BA Week Day 2: No Joke

No Joke best describes Day 2 of BA Week for Matt in more ways than one. Matt got home around 7:30pm just as I finished cooking Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo per his request (well a week ago but I just got around to making it). He walked in the door and said "Boy do I have… Continue reading BA Week Day 2: No Joke

Fire Academy Update: Hoses and Hell Week

Since I'm not the one going through the Academy it's a little difficult for me to explain everything Matt and the recruits do but I think a brief update is sufficient which is generally what I get from him each night. He comes home most nights filthy from dirt and sweat and he is usually… Continue reading Fire Academy Update: Hoses and Hell Week
