Volume No. 17 Issue No. 5 May 2020  



  Following in his father’s footsteps
  

     “It's really the only job I have ever had.”
   
   Lt. Cody Finn followed in his father’s footsteps and became a firefighter right out of high school. He joked that he had no other choice because, in a sense, he joined a family business.
   
   “It’s really the only job I have ever had,” Finn said.
   
   The 10-year veteran is based at Station 3.
   
   What Finn likes most about his job is the interaction with people on several different levels. He said that is what makes the job fun. What he dislikes most about his job is seeing people at their worst.
   
   For the May fire safety tip Finn encourages people to keep a defensible space around their houses, making sure there is a clear area of 5 to 30 feet and no tree branches touching the house. Finn reiterated that the FFPD will inspect properties and make fire safety recommendations.

   CORRECTION: In the April issue, we referred to Nathan Hale as a “new” firefighter; however, he has been with the FFPD for at least six years. Chief Trent Harwig was swearing him in because he was promoted to driver/operator.
   
   Also, Travis Kuemmerle’s name was misspelled. The correct spelling is Kuemmerle.
   
   We apologize to Nathan and Travis.
