Happy New Year
I wish everyone the best in the New Year. I have had a lot of fun this past year with the Roanoke Fire Blog. I am happy to see all the progress that the Roanoke Fire EMS Department and the Firefighters of Roanoke have made. We have seen a lot of progress this past year, as well as some minor set backs.
I must say that I truly love my job. I enjoy coming to work each and every day. I know a lot of Roanoke’s Firefighters share in my sentiment as well. I really enjoy the camaraderie that I share when I stop by fire houses throughout the City.
Keep the news coming in.
One other note that I missed in December was that “Firefighting in Roanoke” is now a year old. I am not sure the exact count of books sold, but it is somewhere around 1600 – 2000. I have plans to begin another book this year, although I have not decided on the format I will choose.
One last note, E13 and M9 ran the first call of the New Year. We just got back from call number 1 which was toned out at 0001 hours. That probably will not happen for me again in my career.
Good luck in the New Year, God Bless, and Stay Safe.
