Hello! As a firefighter, you understand that things aren’t always easy for you or your family. Juggling life at the station and at home can get hectic. Here are some tips to help maintain the delicate balance between your chosen career and your family.

Even though your job requires you to work varying hours, allow your spouse and your children to establish a normal schedule. Find a time when you can all share a meal or talk about your day and integrate this into your daily routine. This will help establish some stability in an otherwise chaotic life.

Family time can be anytime. Don’t lose out on memories because of your erratic schedule. When you find the time, spend it playing a game or building a pillow fort. These are the things your family will remember most.

Thanks for watching, and be sure to tune in for Part 2.
