For 13 years, Lorin W. Myers has used his own car for his role as chaplain. When it began to breakdown, a firefighter at Fire District 3 started to raise money to buy Myers a new car.
Myers said they called him into the station for a debriefing earlier this week. Waiting behind the fire trucks, was a set of new wheels.
“I said, ‘Well, this is wonderful.’ That’s all I could think of. It’s wonderful. This car is so beautiful and it’s so different from the other rigs I have here,” Myers said.
Myers is on call 24/7, but he says when you love what you do, it doesn’t seem like work.
