Last week I had the distinct pleasure of watching seven young men take the oath of office and graduate from recruit status to a City of Pooler Fireman. To look upon these young men, in this case, and to be able to see the excitement, pride, and enthusiasm they displayed was heartwarming. We should all feel comforted knowing that we have more fireman working to keep us all safe.
Their esprit de corps for Chief Simmons, Chief Cribbs, their training officer, current firemen and their fellow classmates was event in their actions and expressions. You could literally see the excitement in their eyes when the announcement was made to each one of them which firehouse they were being assigned to. Congratulations to each one of you and thank you for your service to our community.
