Firefighter Significant Others-

I’ve been lurking for a while and thought I’d come out of the
shadows. Just wanted to let you know I understand your concern about
loved ones out there on incidents or as I like to call it “the
alternate universe of fire.” It’s hard not to be concerned when you
have little or no information — sometimes your imagination can be
your worst enemy. Myself, my boyfriend and my sister are all
firefighters and it’s hard for US not to worry about each other, I can
imagine what it’s like for those of you waiting by the phone and
watching the news. Something I’ve learned from being in that
“alternate universe” is that it’s better not to worry about something
you can’t do anything about. Don’t dwell on the dangers, be proud of
your heroes. Keep up the support system!!!
