Fired Up!

Fired Up!

Recently I was given the privilege to tour my hometown’s fire department in Frisco, Texas. Thanks to my dad being on city council and being friends with the fire chief, we got a special tour. We saw the secret rooms and I even got to go inside the control room that has huge screens that show activity from all over Frisco. (It is actually really creepy how much these guys can see on a daily bases.) This room was full of tons of secrets so I was blown away. I even got some cool pictures of the place. It was everything I imagined it would be!
I have to say the one thing I learned while visiting the station was that 4 out of 5 firemen are sexy and I need to change my major. HA! Just kidding. I did learn that firemen really do not have too bad of a job. They typically week 3-4 days a week and do other things besides putting out fires. For instance, they go to schools and restaurants around town secure their safety. I enjoyed going to the fire station and learning so much about the fire industry. I had no idea firemen did other things besides put out fires. They actually have offices where they do tons of paper work. I would definitely visit again because it was such a blast and really fired me up!
