Normally, my encounters with firemen on St. Patrick’s Day weekend begin with cheering them on in the New York City parade, and end with a serious question “light or dark beer.”
But this year, the Friday before St. Patrick’s Day, I was contemplating the answer to a different question posed to me by a Sylvania Township firefighter.
“Do you have an escape plan?” asked Mike Behan, Sylvania Township firefighter.
An escape plan? I have never thought of how I would escape from any of the places I have lived in case of a fire or horrific event.
