When you’re a firefighter, everyday when you go to work you have no idea what is going to happen. That’s why we do it. It’s the perfect job for those of us with short attention spans. Was the medical call we were just on boring? No worries, in 20 minutes you could be helping someone in a car accident or rappelling down a cliff to rescue a fallen hiker. But often, the call could be something goofy. This story is one of the many goofy things that continues to make me laugh.

Over the years I've gathered many surprising and funny stories. Most have a good leadership lesson for all of us. I hope you enjoy them. View all posts by Bobbie Scopa

OMG Bobbie…I can so relate! You had me in stitches with this one just recalling the different types of incidents we use to have. I love that you’re doing this blog. I thought of putting my own stories on paper some day. You’re an inspiration, but you always have been! Take care…Josie
Thanks Josie. The funny stories is what got me through the horrible stuff.
