Happy Holidays

During this holiday season it is important to remember the little things that still make a difference. I was on duty last night and went on a young homeless man that was sleeping in an alley. He was polite and apologized for sleeping where he was at. One of my firefighters said, “Hey, this would be a good time to give out a Bowman Bag’’. I asked her what a Bowman Bag was. FF/PM Austin Siman then told me that Curt Bowman, an LBFD Engineer has these bags that he distributes to homeless people. The bags were collaboration between Curt and his mom and contain toiletry items, packaged food and other things that may show a bit of comfort to otherwise miserable living conditions. This act of kindness struck me in such a way that it peeled back some of the jaded layers and showed the selfless devotion firefighters/first responders show every single day around the World. When I asked Curt about his ‘Bowman Bags’ this morning he told me how he and his mom came up with the idea and then proceeded to tell me about another incident where FF/PM Steve Zahn took off his own socks and gave them to a cold, homeless person that had hole riddled socks. I called the Sandy Hook Volunteer FD in Connecticut last week and simply just asked them if there was anything Firehouse Chefs could do for them. As a firefighter with 20 years of experience I can tell you that we see horrifying things and have to perform our job with competence and compassion. It will be a long time before our brother and sister first responders can move forward from the images they saw and dealt with at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The point in all of this is that I wanted people to know that these things take place on a daily basis. I want to share these stories because nobody would ever know that despite cutbacks, political attacks, poor leadership or the changing landscape within the Fire Service that first responders care. These are all acts that would have gone unnoticed, yet I felt the need to say thank you. Thank you to everyone that serves in the Fire Service, Law Enforcement, EMS and the Military. You are all appreciated, needed and are an invaluable asset to the communities you serve.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays From Firehouse Chefs!

Viva LA Foodies | Eddie’s career, the Firehouse Chef’s Food Truck, & all of that ink…

Viva LA Foodie, the ‘guilt free place for fellow foodies to come together and unite to discuss all things food and drink,’ caught up with Eddie and the crew at various locations around LA: at the Long Beach firehouse where he’s captain, on the streets of Downtown LA with the food truck, and at a YMCA Stair Climb for Los Angeles charity event sponsored by the NBC firefighter TV drama, Chicago Fire.

Firehouse Chefs Owner Eddie Sell and the Firehouse Chefs Food Truck Crew“The show is not far from Eddie’s day-to-day routine that encompasses two converging careers – as firefighter and chef – and all of the entrepreneurial functions that go with the territory that have become a part of Eddie’s reality. You never know where you will see Eddie next, but we know it will be hot and he will be on the front-lines.”

Gain a little insight into Eddie’s personal, professional and culinary past, including what his tattoos mean to him, and how he respects others while staying true to himself.
