    349. "Bless Your Heart" - Joey Petruccelli

    349. "Bless Your Heart" - Joey Petruccelli

    "Bless your heart" is a southern way of saying so many things in one quick phrase. Joey Petruccelli, a transplant from NJ to Richmond,VA, loves being an inner city fireman. His NJ charm sometimes gets in the way of his drive and hustle but he doesnt apologize for who he is. Like the southerns, "bless your heart" is a kinder, gentler way than the rough and tough jersey. Joey knows this and it's his style of southern charm. A true love of the job and a student who takes any opportunity to learn, he holds the job in the highest regard an fiercely protects the core principles of the fire service. "Crawl, walk, run" is Joey's belief when it comes to training. Working with new recruits, he knows the value of teaching the right way - no short cuts and hard work and dedication. Joey approach is in your face and real - he acknowledges this and will not shy away from telling you the way it is which is kind of refreshing these days. This blue collar, dirty and tough job needs to be protected by those that are all in. Joey Petruccelli is all in.

    348. Public Safety Advocate - Melanie Clark

    Melanie joined Jeremy on the podcast once again to discuss the Virginia Move Over Laws that she has been advocating for for some time. Her tireless efforts protecting first responders is evident by her hard work and tenacity when fighting for our safety. Her latest battle is to repeal legislation that was cut in this years Virginia state budget. The Virginia Military Survivors and Dependents Education Program (HB6003 / SB6003) which provides financial assistance for further education for family's of first responders and military personnel killed in the line of duty has been modified / cut from this years budget. The House has repealed the action but it now sits on the floor of the Senate who appear to have other ideas in mind for this Bill. Melanie is leading the charge in bringing awareness to this Bill to have the Senate repeal their shortsighted decision on eliminating it from the State budget. Protecting our own and taking care of the families who have suffered great losses is the duty of the people. We have an obligation to protect the legacy of those who laid down their lives for others. Melanie's continued fight for these protections is done to preserve and protect the legacy of her late husband Brad Clark.

My first time

I listen to podcasts all the time, today was my first time listening to your show (episode 239) and it just happened to be featuring my son Trevor Meador, it was fantastic (slightly biased)! But seriously, your energy and the overall podcast was great, I’ll be listening to more on my commute into DC!
