Her Dad was a fire lieutenant and her two youngest brothers (twins) joined as cadets, then volunteers and eventually became career firefighters. But when Janet Wilmoth tried to join her local volunteer fire department, the fire chief told her to “Go home and have babies.” She went on to do that too, but in the meantime, Janet Wilmoth took another approach to the fire service. She’s been with Fire Chief Magazine since 1986 and now leads the charge for improving the fire service as the publication’s editorial director. I wonder if that chief has since been reminded of that famous quote: “Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel!” Join Janet and Tiger Schmittendorf, host of the Firefighter Storytellers Internet radio show live at 9pm EST on Wednesday-February 9, 2011, as Janet tells her story of growing up as a firefighter’s daughter to being a fire service leader. Read Janet’s story at Run-to-the-Curb, which will be availableat the start of the live show. Please consider downloading and sharing the Show Flyer at your fire station and with your social networks. Here’s the direct link to the show.
