#TBT Firefighter Badass

I have been in the fire service for over 2 decades. I love everything about it. The firehouse life, tradition, running calls and ability to have a second family. Today I want to honor a guy who early on in my career made a life long impression of just “doing the job”. The fire service is loaded with men and women who have had heroic moments. Here is one guy who immediately comes to my mind as a Fireman who is a badass. Kevin Shea along with his crew from #FDNY elite Rescue 1 made an absolutely outstanding rescue in 1991 which was early in my firefighting career. In a the movie Ladder 49, this rescue was re enacted. Kevin was then injured in the 1993 WTC bombing.

Have fun thinking about the example that your heroes set for you…….Then go create your own legacy for others!
