On and Off Heat Wave

August 3rd, 2012

8-3-12Any day that has a heat index of over 100 degrees, I like to get out early and ride so I can be finished by early afternoon. This always is my intention and for once it proved true today.
Firefighter Mark from the Bergen Street Firehouse had loads of questions for me and was helpful with directions in the neighborhood. He even had me relay well-wishes to some of his firefighting family at the St. Johns Place Firehouse.  There is a lot of camaraderie that takes place between these guys.
I made a short visit to the Park Slope Volunteer Ambulance Corps. This group of over 70 active volunteers helps with the overload of going on calls for those in need of assistance.
Jimmy and Herbert were two locals who had a lot to share about how The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes is important in their community.
