Huntington Beach Fire Department


Most of the time we blog about our darling children, but not today! Its Greg's turn in the spotlight. For all of you that don't know already, Greg recently realized his long time goal of working as a firefighter for the city of Huntington Beach Fire Department. He has wanted this position for at least 5 years and has been active in the application process for the past 2. After 2 applications, one for firefighter and the other for firefighter/paramedic, a captain's interview, a physical agility test, a paramedic skills test, a background investigation, a chief's interview, a physcological evaluation, a polygraph exam, and a medical exam its finally done! Whew!! Everyone is sooo excited. We get to see him more because he dosen't have to commute 220 miles to work(no really, it was 220 miles to work). He is loving it because it truly is a great department with awesome people. Now whenever we want we get to go to the fire house for a private tour or see daddy riding down the street in the big red fire engine, how cool! Now we just hope that Sean dosen't do something to make daddy respond to our house on duty.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! We remember that goal from when we lived there. I am so happy for you both, it'll be nice to have your husband around too! Does Greg get to have the training firemen around who have to make the food and do the crappy work now?

Congratulations! I bet he is so excited too. I just hope Sean doesn't end up being a little firebug like Tyler. He tried burning our house down twice after we moved in......sad to say he gets it from me.
