Not everyone gets to do a job they love, let alone have it be the family business. However, it isn’t a surprise when family members end up as firefighters in the same agency or in the same area. To share some stories, lessons and their love for the job, Rob Moran, Danny Moran, John Lewis and Walter Lewis will take to the stage at Firehouse Expo in Columbus, OH, to talk about Firefighting: The Family Business.
