"THERE MUST BE SOMETHING IN THE WATER"!
That's what one firefighter at the Mediapolis Fire Department in Iowa said when the department welcomed 6 babies in the past 7 months alone!
When one by one since August, the firefighters each announced another baby on the way.“It was a surprise every time someone else announced that they were expecting,” Brockett said. Though the volunteer firefighters have always considered each other family, they said the births of their children this close together wasn’t planned. It just sort of happened. “Not only do we all volunteer together at the fire department, but we also are all friends outside of the fire service,” said Tom Brockett. “It’s a brotherhood that goes beyond the fire station.”
