Unless you’ve been in the position of a firefighter, it’s nigh to impossible to understand the stressors involved. The men and women who fight fires, especially those who risked life and limb by going into this burning home to rescue someone they don’t even know, earn the title of ‘Hero’s’ as far as I’m concerned,” says John Larkin, Senior Partner with ESC of Greater Ohio. “A good outcome is not always the case, but when it is, you know that without the brave men and women of a community’s fire service it could never have taken place.”
