Nomad483 karma

My father was a firefighter in the FDNY (off the top of my head I don't remember specifically where but I know he used to be on Ladder 110) and several years after 9/11 he had to retire due to lung problems from being at Ground Zero. Along with that, my grandfather who passed away a few years ago was a lower-level chief back when he was in the FDNY. I just wanted to say/ask a few minor things.

First off I just wanna say thank you for helping serve the city and protect/save people, I don't always see firefighters get the respect they deserve but you guys are heroes. Not many other people would be willing to run into burning buildings to save folks, so thank you.

Secondly, my dad and grandfather always shared with me funny stories from around the firehouse, of either funny stuff that happened around the precinct with other guys or with new rookies, or of funny things that happened while out responding to an emergency. Do you have any funny or interesting stories you'd be willing to share?
