VIDEO/PHOTOS: A passion for firefighting ignited for one mother-daughter duo. Melissa Washburn and her daughter Brooke work side by side at the Good Hope Station, Hampden Township Volunteer Fire Company. This Mother's Day, the two reflected on their journey together. They said it's easier to be ready for whatever comes their way because they know they have each other to rely on and learn from. “My mom is an inspiration. She’s motivational, and truly one of a kind," said Brooke. It certainly isn’t every day that we get to work alongside our moms. And for Melissa, working with her daughter was a special opportunity she never saw coming, especially after starting out as a preschool teacher. “I just knew that there was a need and thought, well, I'll do what I can," said she said.
