This is to good not to share……..the planets aligned last night for Junior FF Wolford and his Father, Deputy Chief Wolford as a memory was made that not many get to share or experience.
Last evening for the 33 Box, Junior FF Wolford responded on his first ever run on the Engine Company with his Father, Deputy Wolford as the Engine officer. To make the moment even more memorable, his first run on the Engine Company was a working fire.
Not many firefighters in the world can say their first engine run was with their Dad, let alone a working fire. Of course the moment was captured when we returned to quarters. ... See MoreSee Less
I remember my first run with my father. Definitely a great memory. Glad that you both got to have this memory together.
It’s the best feeling❤️🥺
That is awesome
Me and my oldest were on his first call together on opposite rigs.
That is a special thing for sure. I had that privilege as well with my son. Now its 13 years later and he's been a career man for 12 years.
I can say the same! I was lucky enough to grow up Riding behind my father !!!
I remember as a probie with 32 my first fire was with capt wolford at the time. Strong work brothers
Be safe Collin!
There was no greater honor, than riding next to my father on a call. Didn’t matter if it was him driving, and me up front, or riding back step, to a fire, or the fourth false alarm of the day. Treasured moments for sure. Benny Wolford, you get it my friend! Keep it up!
I’m not crying, you’re crying!!! 😩😭 How is he so grown up already!!!!
My first knob time on a "fire" was with Kevin Basehore pumping for me
That coat on the Chief looks a little on the long side
Chief make sure you always try to get pictures together….. trust me I wish I had ……
Always “train” your relief.
