Earlier in the semester I tried contacting the retired firefighter to which I was assigned to. After making frequent phone calls to the listed number it became clear that either the firefighter is dead or he does not like to answer calls. I proceeded to contact a different firefighter on the list, who at one time was the fire chief in Winter Park. This man now assumes the fire chief responsibilities in a community about an hour from Winter Park. When I talked to him earlier this semester he seemed very willing to sit down and talk to me about his experiences as a Winter Park fireman. Throughout this week and the following week my partner and I plan on revising our first draft and continuing further research surrounding our topic.
