F is for Firemen
Is this what your fireman looks like? Would be nice but we're forgetting that these are models and that someone has done their "make-up" to look like this. Now, I'm not saying that models don't work hard or can't be firemen, I'm just saying that I'm sure if you walk into any station you won't find this.
We need to remember that firemen are family men; son, husband, father, uncle, grandson. And family men come in all sorts of sizes and ages! As long as they're strong enough and with the right knowledge. Here's a picture from a calendar photo shoot with real firemen but I think it disproves everything I just wrote ;-)
And yes, I know that women can be firemen too.
This is as close as I can get to real firemen dressed in regular clothes. Most of the other pictures were in their turnouts!
Article about picture, here (wondering if these are some of the fire fighters or some of the supporters now!)
