The number of “hats” we wear don’t really reflect the number of disciplines firefighters need to be proficient in when called upon. We are the last resort for someone who has nowhere else to turn. So having a well-rounded cache of skills, education and experience really pay off in those situations that aren’t quite so straightforward.

However, the joke in all of this is that firefighters literally need to have available 6+ hats/helmets/things to put on their heads to safely manage the variety of incidents we respond to. Sorta funny-serious, I don’t know… But it was fun to draw Jake wearing a bunch of different things on his head. Stay safe.
