Firefighters talk about what it's like being part of the busiest station in the nation. Wagon Driver Greg Thompson recalls the unique experience of taking his son, and fellow recruit, on a training exercise -- a Live Burn. Now his son is a recruit. It's a family tradition in the making. Riding with the crew on engine 10, we respond to a fire, where they drop at the hydrant and pull a line. The next call is an EMS call where truck 13 arrives on-scene. Captain Donny keeps the guys on their toes on every call. Griff is riding on the ambo today, and he hates it. Back at the station we see what it's like to sit at the watch desk.
