The fire service, like the special operations community, is built on a foundation of tradition. Tradition informs everything from command climate and culture, to unit cohesiveness, to tactics, to day-to-day life in the unit (or the fire station).
One of the most glorious traditions of the fire service is the Sunday breakfast. Any time we have Sunday duty, we start the day with a giant home-cooked breakfast. Today, Father’s Day, this author is spending at the station, on duty. That means Sunday breakfast, on Father’s Day.
