FirefighterToolbox Podcast/ Internet Radio Show Episode #11
Interview with FirefighteWife.com’s Lori Mercer
About this Episode:
It doesn’t matter how great you are on the fire ground or around the fire house when your marriage is in shambles and your having troubles at home, that leads to trouble at the fire house.
I have seen this over and over again. When we are dealing with issues at home it crosses over into our work and at the firehouse.
To be great firefighters, the first fire we need to put out is the fire that destroys our marriage and our relationships. Today, I talk with Lori Mercer from Firefighterwife.com about how we can be better husbands and understand our wifes better so we can have a better relationship which will lead to us being better on the fire ground. Lots of great items covered here on a topic that few firefighters talk about, yet its very important.
(Sorry for the Female firefighters, I am looking for FirefighterHusbands.com but it’s not yet developed. I still feel this can be shared with your husband and be mutually beneficial. See you in the comments below.)
