Anyway, I loved his fireman smell. His clothes and his hair would smell like fire and I loved it. My brothers and I would ask him to tell us stories about the fires he had fought that night and we would ask if he saved any 'hurt guys'.
Being a firefighter comes with much sacrifice. If you know a fireman chances are he does side jobs to bring in some extra money. Although these men run into burning buildings to save people, belongings and even neighborhoods, they are not paid enough. My dad had many side jobs like window washer, delivery man and airport shuttle service. He did all of these things in addition to being a hero as a fireman and as a dad.
I have not been asked to promote this trailer and am not receiving any monetary gain for doing so.
Quite simply, as the daughter of a fireman who fought for 33 years to keep a city from crumbling, it is a personal mission to spread the word about these men and women who literally risk their lives to help strangers.
