What do you get for 400+ hours of Fire Fighter Training?

OK, so, Mike spent over 400 hours last year participating in Fire Fighter Training, and got this really cool jacket from his Volunteer Division Chief, Beth Weldon.  It has his name embroidered on it. 

To put it all into perspective; he works his regular job 37.5 hours a week, so this is like working at a second full time job for 11 weeks.  Baffling!  I know he was working hard at getting in some training, but 400+ hours?  Awesome!

Congratulations! I'm sure you have missed having him around the home all those hours but I'm sure you are proud of him too.
Way to go Mike!

That's quite the accomplishment. Lots of dedication for both of you.
