Speaker: Hi. My name's Brendan Soder. I'm a staff sergeant. The best part about our job here is it's fun. Being a firefighter, you get to do a lot of stuff nobody else gets to do. Some of the things we do here: We protect the F-16s. We go out and meet them if they have an in-flight emergency. We protect the civilian aircraft at the airport. We also run EMS calls. We're all trained EMTs here. All that good stuff.
