Old-School Attitude with Chris Tobin

If you spend any time on Twitter, you’ve likely seen the tweets from Chris Tobin.

He’s a firefighter from St. Louis. And in the four years he’s been on Twitter, he’s racked up over 37,000 posts.

To say he’s opinionated would be an understatement.

He has over 6,000 followers, which brings me to another point: his tweets are usually dead-on correct.

Chris is an old-school firefighter. He’s riding Rescue-2 these days.

So I thought I’d ask him about the state of the fire service. Who better to give an honest answer?
