Going to be a busy week

My son is hosting a seminar for Firefighters on Sat. So Mom gets to cook for about 65 people. He says he is going to grocery shop on Friday.

Firefighters in the State of Illinois have to have training and so many hours a year to hold their status as a firefighter. He is a Nationally accredited Instructor and also has State certification. So he hosts other instructors in his local Fire Departments to take these training classes. It is usually an 8 hour seminar and you have to provide food for them. Snacks drinks and a lunch meal is in order. Guys like to eat so we cook a lot of food for that many. Holding a hose on a fire isn't the only thing they need to know. Most of the training is on saftey issues of protecting you and the other firefighters plus the residents or other persons in harms way. Men and women that place their lives on the line for others is a very dedicated profession . I applaude the selfless efforts they preform each day. Thank a Firefighter when you see one. Chris
