I wanna be a firefighter

Wednesday was one of the best days ever!

I am our OHS (Occupational Health & Safety) Rep at work and we went on Fire Training. All I can say is wow...

We had an awesome trainer, Gavin, who was absolutely passionate about fire! Can you believe it?! Those of you who know me know how I feel about passionate people - I just LOVE being around them.

Even all the theory was fascinating - yes, I have a science background but honestly, even if it wasn't your "thing" you would have loved it.

But the best was the practical. The only way it could have been better was if we had cool uniforms to wear.

The trainer made a Class B fire (using liquids) and each one had a chance to put it out. So cool! Then we each had a chance to use the fire hose - my word! That hose was so heavy!

At the end of the day, I was soaked and dirty but we had such fun. I would do it again anytime.

I almost, almost want a fire so I can extinguish it!

***last night, Dion and I went to the movies. Afterwards, I inspected their cabinet to see if their fire extinguisher had been recently serviced and if the pressure was correct. How cool is that?!
