Firefighter Kids: The Future of the Fire Service

Ah…cute children dressed up as firefighters and posing in front of rigs. Some of these children are the future of our fire service. Growing up around it makes it easy to decide to become a firefighter. The first photo was the inspiration for this post and if I get more photos I will do another post.

Brother Andrew Puckett sent this photo in and says “I am a proud father of my twin boys (Drew left, and Charlie right). They will be three this December. The fire service is a family and like me, these boys will grow up in the fire service. My father was the Chief of Richlands Virginia. I have an old news paper clipping of us when I was about 4 or 5. You never forget those memories. Love the blog and keep up the fight.”
