It has been many years ago now as my son is 22. Had it not been for the fire department responding as first response… Thanks to Mr Jake Trotter, a close friend whom in which I trusted him and his wife to watch my child if my mother couldn’t. Kody was 10 months old when we found him completely unresponsive and blue. No heart beat, no respiratory signs, nothing… How he had been that long was unknown. This was 3am. They saved his life.
I am also lucky enough to say….. I have 2 uncle retired from the Fire Department one federal fire department, one parker fire department Greenville, SC. A brother active Donaldson center fire department. And last but not least makes me most proud my 15 yr old he is an explorer for Greer city fire, and Greenville county EMS. Sleeps and and breaths this stuff and always puts a memorial up for EVERY fallen brother on his facebook page.
Just last week remembered them all including the cheif with the heart attack ..NOW THOSE ARE MY HEROS CANT EVER PICK JUST ONE THEY ARE ALL HEROS THAT NEVER HEAR IT ENOUGH…. NO OFFENSE TO ANYONE WE HAVE BLACK HISTORY MONTH MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY EVEN BREAST CANCER MONTH WHICH I HAVE…. WHEN DO THEY GET A NATIONAL FIRE FIGHTER HERO MONTH… UNDER PAID UNDER RECOGNIZED ….BUT RISK THERE LIVES FOR OTHERS WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT.
