About 10 years ago, Jesse Bussey was down on his luck. "I was in a bad relationship,” he said. “I had split up with a few of my friends and things like that.” A friend told him to take some of that pain off his mind by becoming a volunteer firefighter, and that’s what he did. Eventually, he signed on as a volunteer firefighter in Couchton, a small town between Aiken and Wagener. Bussey fell in love with firefighting and met a man who changed his life: Greg Bailey, a more senior firefighter there, took Bussey and other young firefighters under his wings.
