Thank you!

Sweet sculpture outside the fire station

You might remember, if you follow my twitter and facebook status updates much, that I crashed my road bike a few weeks ago. I blogged about it here , complete with pictures and all, but what got me thinkin’ was the people who came to help.

Fire Station 1

Yep. My neighborhood fire department was the closest bunch of people. Heck, I’d conveniently crashed less than a block from them. So, it got me thinkin’—when was the last time I’d ever said thanks? You know, to those in the helping profession.

Heck, the fire department/ambulance has come to my rescue a few times (yeah, but that’s a whole ‘nother post…).

So, I snapped a few shots of the department who rushed to help me when I crashed, and I just wanted to say thank you all those out there who are in this line of work. You put your lives on the line for people on a daily basis. Sure, my incident wasn’t major, like  having to jump into a burning building, which I know you do on a regular basis, but still . . . thanks for your willingness to jeopardize your safety to protect the lives of others.

God Bless You!

  2. Rick–I found the comment and it’s so true. Yep, the comments are at the top of each entry (different than most, huh?). They’ve come to my rescue even out side my biking crashes, so I’m forever thankful as well.

    Kat–Thanks. You’re right, each call is a unique instance, regardless.


    KM–They did rush to my side, that’s for sure. Helpful I crashed very close to them, too!

  3. I made a comment in your previous video entry that should’ve been here! Got confused as to which comment thingy I was clicking. So…allow me to lead you on a wild goose chase.

  4. Indeed.

    Even though you said your situation wasn’t anything like rushing into a burning building, each call puts fire/police/rescue squads in a unique position. We should be thankful they are there to help out.

    Thank YOU for the reminder not to take them for granted.
