Back on the Job: Hanover Firefighter Jack Emerson
“When I hurt my back at work I was unsure if I would ever be able to return to work at the firehouse. The staff here was so encouraging and motivating. I had to put the hard work in, but Zac kept me focused and on track. The entire staff knows your name, it feels like they are all in your corner. I had heard I might be out for 4-6 months, at best, but 2 ½ months later I’m back on shift working full duty.” –Lieutenant Jack Emerson, Hanover FD
