    Episode 21 - Keith Hanks, Lancaster Fire Department, retired

    Episode 21 - Keith Hanks, Lancaster Fire Department, retired

    In today's episode, we welcome retired firefighter and EMS worker Keith Hanks.  Keith started an a volunteer, on-call firefighter.  He ultimately became a full-time firefighter and EMT.  He also became a training officer in both professions, earning a Fire Science Degree and worked in the Massachusetts Fire Academy.


    Some of the funny calls we cover involve Keith leaving a very important part of his gear at the firehouse on his way to a call, a motor vehicle accident caused by "distracted driving" on a whole new level, and a fire call in a messy house that put a firefighter in a very "nasty" situation.


    Keith is also working on his first book to help others in this field deal with the unimaginable trauma one may experience being a first responder.

    Episode 20 - Brett Titus, Denver PD and K9 Swat officer

    Episode 20 - Brett Titus, Denver PD and K9 Swat officer

    Wow!  We had to pack a lot into this show.  This episode features Brett Titus, retired K9 SWAT officer of the Denver Police Department.  This dude spent 22 years on a full time SWAT Team, which is amazing.  There are only a few cities in the country with a full time SWAT team.  And to spend 22 years as a SWAT officer is equally as rare.


    We don't think about SWAT officers shedding tears, but Brett shares with us some emotional decisions he had to make with his last K9 partner.  He also shares not one, but two of his most embarrassing moments on job.  One of these stories he's never shared before.


    Now, Brett helps saves lives another way.  He is the CEO and Founder of LifeSpot, a safety and security app designed to save lives by improving emergency response time and communication during an active shooter incident.  Learn more about LifeSpot at www.lifespotapp.com

    Episode 18 - Featuring Retired Officer Andrew Baxter aka ”Drew Breasy”

    Episode 18 - Featuring Retired Officer Andrew Baxter aka ”Drew Breasy”

    This episode has a ton packed into it.  During his career, Officer Baxter started as a dispatcher in 1992.  Within 4 years he was picked up by the sheriff's office and his career took off from there.


    He's worked in Criminal Intelligence, Narcotics, Secret Service Task Force, Training division and more.


    We have another eerie cat story.  Plus, a story I can very much relate to involving a professional wrestler.


    We discuss the effects that alcohol had on his career and how he's now better for it.


    Give him a follow on Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/drew_breasy/
