Best plumbing or HVAC story
As a young apprentice, I was returning to the job from picking up supplies, driving down Market St in Santa Cruz. I noticed smoke billowing out from a home next to the senior center. I pulled over and went to the front door of the home, I called out to see if anyone was inside and I heard a woman’s voice calling for help! I went inside and crawled to the back of the home, found an elderly woman and pulled her to safety. The house ended up burning to the ground! I waited with her for two hours as paramedics made sure she was okay.
