"I'm a supporter and former volunteer of the Crescent City Fire Department in Crescent City, FL. I still work for the city now as a meter reader. I'm also a volunteer for Fire Dog Services Program (a turnout gear recycling program for hand-me-down gear), which I've done since 2011'ish. I got this tattoo around 2013, and I designed it myself. It was inspired by my interest through life being a junior/explorer to a volunteer. Working with FDSP, I have witnessed many stations willing to donate hand-me-down gear to less fortunate smaller stations, and I believe it's just one of the many true definitions of brotherhood; our Fire brothers and sisters working together to help one another out, even in other areas or other parts of the world."
