Words to Live By
Quite often in life, we receive very important advice and/or bits of information. You know, the life saving ones.
I remember one of the first fire calls I went on. The call came in as"Smell of smoke in residence. Possible Carbon Monoxide" As you can imagine, I was nervous and excited at the same time.
It was then that I learned a very important piece of advice. I was following the lead firefighter in the house. We were in complete gear, including SCBA (self contained breathing apparatus).
As we were walking in, I looked at my partner. Hoping for a profound bit of advice, I asked him, "What should I do?"
His response, "Grab an Ax and Try Not to Die."
Man, I really miss those days!
