“It’s about crew bonding and laughter in my firehouse – and apparently me being the butt of every joke.” Fairfax Firefighter-Paramedic Stephanie White details how she nurtures her relationship with her crew every shift, not just with laughter, but also by being vulnerable enough to have difficult conversations when needed. Plus, we dig into all this:

  • How crews can best support a pregnant firefighter on the job
  • Why the color of White’s hair can determine the potential for shift chaos
  • How to create a space for vulnerable conversations and real talk
