I am not sure if everyone knows, but John is a Volunteer FireFighter for our town, Fairview, AL. They are given a radio that they keep with them at the times when it is possible for them to go and assist with fires and car wrecks. John has also taken several classes that has allowed him to become a Certified First Responder for medical calls. The radio thing takes A LOT to get used to, especially when it goes off at 2am. It gets even worse when you remember that you are not getting paid for it. There are also times, like just recently, when someone wants to do a controlled burn or wants to burn something big that they call the fire department and they go and do it for them. A couple of weeks ago someone wanted to burn down an old mobile home and John and another volunteer, Harry Knight, went out to do it. The boys really wanted to go watch Daddy burn something so we went out for a little bit and I was able to snap some pictures while we were there. Here are a few of them.
