VIDEO: Lieutenants Joe and Jennifer Linnenkugel completed their final shift at the Toledo Fire and Rescue Department on Tuesday.
Both have been members of the department for years and knew each other well before joining.
Jennifer had been a stay-at-home mom before her husband transferred to Toledo. Upon going through the training, she realized there were a number of women in his fire class.
"I didn't think that women should be firefighters, so when he decided to get on Toledo so we could come back - my family lived here - he had three women that were in his fire class," Jennifer said.
For some reason, that did not sit well with Jennifer.
"Obviously, I could tell she was thinking about it before, because when I would come home from the academy she was always asking questions about it," Joe said.
