Firefighters are known to do whatever it takes. We get called for all sorts of situations: cats in trees, resident assistance calls, etc. We also collect Christmas trees when the season is over, bring smoke alarms to folks in need, and act as good examples in a myriad of ways in the community. When there’s an accident, any one of a number of things can happen. Here’s one more thing to add to that number: firefighters reading to a scared little boy.
