    Teaching firefighting skills to young women

    Awesome thing that my local fire department is doing. And very nice that BBC has picked up on it.

    - Gray Trek Madone 4.7 road bike, mystery crack in top tube repaired by Calfee, Bontrager Affinity RXL saddle
    - Red Trek 6000 mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    Women make excellent firefighters, if I do say so myself.

    We did some classes for kids when I was on the job, but mostly to the Explorer Post due to liability. Hardest part with kids is their inability to gauge risk, they walk right into a semi controlled environment thinking it's like Disney, where all risk is mitigated.

    I used to meet the rare women firefighter in 1 of my jobs a long time ago..1 of them earlier was a star high school volleyball and basketball player at same school where I went. I met her when I had relocated 2 decades later in another city.
