A new era in life is upon us.
This is one that I know well.
I was born in New Jersey in the 1950s and ’60s, in a small town in western New Jersey called Fairfield, where I lived for a time.
My parents were both firefighters.
I went to the local fire academy at about age six.
I loved it.
When I turned 11, I joined the local Fire Department and I went from there.
One day, I got a call from the chief that the fire department had been placed on lockdown.
I was shocked.
I got out of my car and went to go to the station.
They told me that the people on the other side of the lockdowns had been shot and that the lockdown was lifted.
I didn’t know what to do.
I couldn’t figure out how to get out.
Then one day, the police came and told me they were on their way to get me to safety.
I never heard from them again.
As a teenager, I had a dream that one day I would be a firefighter.
I joined a fire department and after working my way up through the ranks, I worked my way through the National Fire Protection Association.
It was a big dream.
When I got to the firehouse, I was a captain.
That was it.
I wanted to be a fireman, and I didn�t think it would happen.
At the time, I wasn�t particularly competitive.
I just thought it was fun to work and enjoy my job.
But when I got into it, it was like a dream come true.
After graduating from the fire academy, I became a fire officer and was promoted to sergeant.
But I also became a father.
And I married a woman who had a fire service career.
I became pregnant with our first child, a boy named Mike.
Mike and I have been married since 1995.
The fire department is the lifeblood of our lives.
It�s what gives us our freedom.
It has given me a career and also given me the opportunity to work in my community.
It gives me the chance to get married and raise a family.
We don�t take it for granted.
We work really hard.
We live a very rigorous lifestyle, and we have a very fulfilling life.
We don�T take it lightly.
We get up at 6 a.m. every day and go to work, because that�s when the work starts.
You have to put your body on the line to protect people.
So when the fire was on lockdown, I knew that I had to do something.
And I did something that no one else had done in the history of the Fire Department.
Now, I have a job as a firefighter, and in the meantime, I’ve learned some new things.
I�ve got to keep up with the latest technology and equipment.
And it�s time to do some training.
For the past several years, I�m teaching my son how to work the fire alarm.
And he�s learning a lot of new things about firefighting.
So, he�ll be a good firefighter.
He�s also learning how to do what you are taught to do in the Fire Training Manual, the Fire Protection Manual, and the Fire Fighting Guidelines.
If I had been in the fire service before, I would have been a captain, but the work here at the fire house has changed my life in a big way.
Fire fighting is a job I would never have wanted to do, but it is what I want to do now.
