AR REWIND: MY INNER SEVEN-YEAR-OLD HANGS OUT WITH THE PAINE FIELD FIRE DEPARTMENT
AR Rewind: This story originally published in February 2016 and is being re-shared. Mostly because I think it is a cool story. Information had not been updated since the initial publication. Enjoy (or re-enjoy)!
I think many people have a child-like persona that lives inside them. I know I do. When I had the opportunity to hang out with the fine folks at the Paine Field Fire Department, my inner seven-year-old was not only excited, but very jealous of my mid-30s self.
I think my initial pitch was to do a story about how the Paine Field Fire Department operates at the airport — and it was very professional-like. When they told me they would love to host me for a story, I couldn’t help but ask if I could turn on the lights and sirens. They told me they could arrange for much more than that. I was down!
