20 Clues Your Dad is a Firefighter

You’re a firefighter and let’s face it, you’re a little different from the rest. As the years go by, and the experiences pile up, parts of “the job” begin to define who you are.

It doesn’t happen all at once, and most of the time you can’t even notice it. Your kids, not knowing the pre-firefighter you, simply accept you the way you are.

Ask a kid how he knows his dad is a firefighter and these are some of the things you might hear:

1) He says weird things like “Stand by,” or “Roger that,” instead of “Wait a sec,” or “Okay,” like everybody else.

2) Everything is in its place…or else!

3) Sometimes, he’s just not there, but he always comes back.

4) No matter where he is, he always knows how to get out fast.

5) He has more fire department related T-shirts than dress shirts.

6) He wears red suspenders to hold his pants up.
