Recently we’ve been working with White Point Beach Resort on a few projects documenting what’s been happening since the main lodge burnt down in November 2011. As this week is National Volunteer Week, it seemed appropriate to feature our volunteer fire departments, since they played a critical role in ensuring the fire did not spread anywhere else in the resort.
So, a few weeks ago we sat down with some of the firefighters who were there at the White Point fire, and their wives, to tell us what their job is like from their perspective, and the impact that such a huge commitment has on family life, as well as the challenges they face in doing their job. It was an interesting and candid discussion and I left with a great sense of admiration for what these men do, as well as for their wives and children who support them unconditionally.
White Point wanted to make this video to say thank you to all the volunteers (and their families) for their tireless efforts to keep all of us safe. Join us in thanking them by watching this video and learning a little bit about what life is really like for these guys.
