(holy cow I’m behind – it’s currently 11/23, so I need to get caught up).
I’m thankful for firefighters. There are several wildfires blazing here in North Carolina. Firefighters from around the country have come in to help battle the blazes that aren’t slowing down (even at night). I know it’s exhausting work.
I have lived in places with full paid firefighting staff and places where the entire crew were volunteers. I imagine staffing a volunteer crew has to be a challenge. My step-mother is the president of her local fire company and I know she carries a lot of responsibility on her shoulders.
