Throughout the years, not only has Sam Kirby's title changed within the Richmond Fire Department, but so has his outlook when it comes to being a firefighter.
"At a structure fire, that's what we're trained to do, and we love doing it," said Kirby, who recently accepted the Richmond Fire chief position.
However, that's also someone's bad day, when they're losing possessions, Kirby explained.
"I used to have that attitude of, 'Let's get a structure fire today, let's get a structure fire today.' But then you know, some of the older guys are like, 'Don't wish that on anybody.' … And now I understand. You don't want somebody to lose their stuff," he said.
