n the firet:ig" tOTS, D:a hero have actually been asked this column! This ;Such a pat to my ego that resist. I mean, person who asked the paper gingerly and at my column to see new atrocity 1 have in print. I I'd better jot it down Shoot it off before he !I may have mentioned my husband is a fireman. Un- he and others are becoming an on- species. It is for the of building up the that this article is writ- A volunteer fireman is than a speeding car, than a three- fire hose, and able, running from the park- the station door, to 'tall bushes in a single is dedicated. How people do you know willing to be jarred a deep sleep, stand or work in all kinds of for perhaps several practically nothing the satisfaction of help- a hard worker. The requirements of the hose, climbing Norma Starks prove that. He is brave. He can face a "towering inferno" and still work to save adjacent buildings. He can face an overturned car with leaking gasoline -- a time bomb -- and still fight to free the passengers. There are, of course, in ad- dition to abstract benefits, concrete ones as well: Single women: You want to meet men? Where else will you find so many with such good qualities? Single men: You want to impress the ladies? This will do it. Married Women: Being a gency Medical Technician will be of inestimable value in raising your children. As mentioned in a previous col- umn, there is nothing chil- dren will not do in order to injure themselves. You will feel much more comfortable with the knowledge of how to stem bleeding and set broken limbs. Besides if your hus- band joins, by the time the fire monitor goes off, and he floods the room with light, and goes roaring down the driveway, you won't be able to sleep anyway, so you may as well join him. Married men: Are you go- ing to let your wife go off alone to a station full of dedi- cated, brave, hard working men without going along to keG an eye on things? You see? There is some- thing for everyone. Possibly the paid depart- ments need recruits, too; and they have the same qualities the volunteers do. But they will have to write their own help-wanted ads. Sorry, fellas. Minimum age for a volun- teer fireman is sixteen. Ex- perience is not necessary. All you need is a desire to serve your community. You won't know how good it feels to save a life until you try. The lssaquah Press, Wednesday, December 7, 1983 - Page 3 Bob Burton back at work five months after losing hand Robert Burton, an lssa- quah man who lost his left hand in a frreak power line accident this summer, re- turned to his old job at Puget Power November 17. He was 20 months and one day ahead of schedule. According to BuTton's wife Bessie, Bob received his final release from Harbor- view Hospital's burn center on November 15, and picked up his Puget Power truck two days later. Burton convinced his supervisors, Bessie laughs, that "driving in to the office each day across the Mercer Island Bridge was harder than working." Burton has been put on a special "limited duty" roster for 30 days to measure his capacity for the extended hours and high risk side of the job, according to Jack Olsen, supervisor of opera- tions for Puget Power's North Central division. "Limited duty" in this sense means no more than 40 hours per week of effort, and no entanglements yet with high voltage jobs requiring the "hot stick" and insulated rubber gloves he was using when electrocuted July 18 on a job near North Bend. As a result of that acci- dent, Burton lost his left hand just below the elbow and suffered numerous serious burns requiring con- siderable skin grafting. According to Olsen, a Puget Power employee for may be the most seriously handicapped outdoor elec- trical service man ever to at- tempt a return to his original position. Bob Burton with his hunting rifle Other employees who have lost limbs or fingers have re- turned to supervisory or in- side jobs, Olsen says. Should he be unable to ful- ly function in the high risk role, Burton will have a range of other jobs to transfer to, Olsen says. "We will definitely have a job for him regardless," he says. "Besides, if anyone can do it, Bob Burton can."
