In the business of firefighting injury is a real concern and can befall us at any time. Often, injury will change the direction of our lives, stop us from running, make us more cautious when lifting or cause us to focus, strengthening and shoring up areas of weakness. It can alter our path in ways we may never consider, opening doors and changing our path forever.
This is part of the story we discuss in Episode 91 in my sit-down with Deputy Chief Kane Nixon Ed.D.. In our chat Nixon shares his journey in the fire service, how an unexpected injury, and a cheeky physician, turned him toward education. We discuss this and so much more, please enjoy!
