This episode of Petey Podcast, recorded earlier in October (2021), features Elyria Township Fire Chief Russ Scarbrough and Assistant Chief Art Mead. Elyria Township Fire is an staunch partner of the Elyria Schools and an excellent teacher of safety to our little learners at the Elyria Early Childhood Village and Westwood Elementary School. The Chief and Assistant Chief chatted with us about the work of firefighters every day and their work through these unprecedented times of COVID-19. At the end of the day, first responders do what they do for love of the work. "We love helping people," said Mead. "I can't think of a single person that's on our department who isn't working more than one job--some have two, some even have three--while they are doing this just because it's the passion that they have for what we do."
