In Heat

There was a horrible fire yesterday in Jericho. Nine fire departments from around the county responded. Jericho was the first. Engine 945 from Company 3 had the first due line into one of the condo units (4 were involved). I was on that hose line.  It was surreal- utterly surreal. Flames everywhere. The real deal for sure. I walked out of there, and was never more sure in my entire life that the other firefighter brothers of mine on the hose would never fail me if i asked them for something truly important. I hope I have earned that same sentiment from them. And I hope if I did any good fighting that fire, it comes back to my kids somehow, someday. Godspeed, Brandon and Skylar. Daddy loves you.
