This week, I sat down with Tyler Plakstis and talked to him about the unique and exciting accomplishment he recently achieved.
M: Can you tell us a little bit about your recent honor in the Fire Department?
T: Last week, I was accepted into the Alert Senior Fire Department after spending 3 years in the Junior Fire Department.
M: What prompted you to want to get in to that kind of work?
T: Everyone in my family is a firefighter and I felt like it was my time to join, too.
M: How did you feel when you got the job?
T: Very excited.
M: So how often do work at the fire department?
T: Every day- and whenever there is a call, I have to respond–even if it’s 1:30 in the morning.
M: So, how do you balance school and your work?
T: I’ve only had the job for a week, so I don’t know yet!
M: (laughs) Well, good luck with everything. What a great accomplishment. Thank you for your time.
T: Thank you.
