Wishing for a Silent Night But Instead Pour Me Another Cup of Joe!…(because this fire apparatus is ready to roll!!!)
Some stations are lucky enough to have their community bring in special treats during the holidays. At my current station, we are spoiled from time to time with sweet treats. However, at the holidays, it can make us pack on a few pounds. Personally, I think the perfect treat to take by a fire station is a canister of coffee grounds (and maybe a super small amount of a treat). It would probably surprise most citizens that our meals and drinks are not provided by the city when we are on duty. Most people don’t realize that firefighters actually pool their money to buy groceries and coffee for their shifts. Coffee is definitely a fire station staple. Just think of all the hours that they work in a shift. Staying alert and ready to respond is very important. So this year just place a bow on a can of coffee grounds and drop it off at your nearest fire station! That is what I am going to do since I live in a different community than I work in. This year I am going to spoil those who protect and serve my family with a cup of Joe! I am attaching the link to download the tags in case you want to join me in wishing your First Responders an ALERT and SAFE holiday season!
Plus as you can see from the second photo where the guys at my station are keeping a growth chart. Unlike a vertical growth chart on a wall, this one is a horizontal growth chart of my hips! After 30 years as a female firefighter in a large department, I happily say they can’t hurt my ONE feeling! Gotta love fire station humor and the agitation of the brotherhood!!! Hopefully these hips won’t grow wider over the holidays! I’ll keep you posted on that journey!
Here is the image to download of the Christmas Coffee Tags.
I printed mine off at an office supply store because their copies are always a little more vibrant than a home printer. Either way these tags are just super festive and just right to add to your coffee donation.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a SAFE night!
