I try to have a short memory of the bad things we see

“Most of our calls are house fires started by space heaters. We had a fire last year and all of us had just gotten out when it completely flashed over. We have to learn how to read the smoke and know when it is going to go. I try to have a short memory of the bad things we see and the burned bodies. I have worked wrecks where the head was completely off or we had to cut doors off to get the body out. I have to shut off the emotions and just react. The best thing we do is talk about it and get it all out. It is not good to hold those things in. I go hunting and fishing to get away from it. I am at peace there. We just got our first new firetruck in eight years and it costs $415,000. I don’t want to be the first person to get a nick on it.”
