The fire fighter

Travis and Ryan are working on a statue in downtown Elkton in memory of Emmett (Thomas) Kuehl, the fallen fire fighter who lost his life in the line of duty at the age of 38. One of the thoughts that comes to my mind when I think of Emmett is him driving the ambulance at top speed to the Flandreau hospital with my 89-year-old mother. I have to say I was fearful that maybe that might just be the last time I would see my mother alive. It never crossed my mind that the young driver, Emmett, would be the one leaving this world not long after that while he was responding to a fire.
