911 at ease

Just one of the (many) things I respect about Amherst Public Safety folks—police, fire or EMT—is they simply ooze love for what they do. So when they host a public event like the FD Central Station Open House or Citizens Police Academy, the professionals involved don’t simply go thru the motions.

Yesterday Kira and I—after a busy morning of soccer and karate—arrived late, around 2:15 and the Chief and Assistant Chief were still there answering questions and giving tours (probably the same question they have heard a 1,000 times before).

Now Kira wants to be a firefighter when she grows up. I could not be more proud of that; although, unsure how I would handle the worry.
