To celebrate Firefighter and EMS Appreciation Week, some workers are taking the time to rekindle their love for their jobs.

Saturday about 100 firefighters representing 20 different local departments gathered in Marathon City.

To get some inspiration from a 28-year-veteran Firefighter.... author Rick Lasky of Texas.

He spoke to the group about having pride and ownership for their jobs.

Marathon's Fire Chief Michael Tylinski says local firefighting rookies *and veterans* benefited from the Lasky's presentation.... which focused on the values of fire service.

He says it was also an opportunity for them to get together with comrades from other departments.
