Lakeland's firefighters have a very real passion for what they do. Earlier this summer, Training Chief John Almskog and Lieutenant Matt Brown were able to share some of their enthusiasm for firefighting and emergency medical response with local teen Brodie Bulloch. Brodie, who is interested in joining the fire service, is one of the stars of UPTV's reality show Bulloch Family Ranch.
Almskog and Brown spent a day with Bulloch, showing him the ropes and providing some insight as to what it takes both physically and mentally to serve the community of Lakeland on the front lines.
The experience was featured on the seventh episode of the show which aired August 21, 2013 at 10:00 PM on UPTV.
