Funny Videos, Serious Messages with Jason Patton

If you spend any time on Facebook, you’ve probably seen the videos posted by Fire Department Chronicles.

If you haven’t, you need to. Go there right now and look them up. I’ll wait. Or go to the YouTube channel.

The man behind these videos is Jason Patton.

He usually, but not always, plays all the roles himself.

Here’s one of my favorites:

Jason’s covered a lot of ground on these videos, from whether TV shows about firefighters are realistic … what do YOU think he found?

…to how to get fired.

But the one that caught my attention most recently was one in which he critiqued a Wall Street Journal video about firefighting.

It was titled, “The Five Things a Firefighter or Paramedic Won’t Tell You.” Here it is.

Jason set about correcting the record in his own..unique…way.


Jason Patton is a career firefighter and paramedic who has worked for Riviera Beach, Florida, Fire/Rescue for 11 years. He also works with a treatment center specializing in mental health and addiction for first responders.

And he is the VP of Fire Department Coffee.
