As you guys know, I ventured off to Chicago, Illinois with NBC last week for a good ol’ time for the 5th Annual One Chicago Day press event! It was so much fun and all the actors were extremely helpful in making our experience so memorable! I got to hang out with some of the cast of NBC’s Chicago Fire and they were a blast, literally lol. I got to be a fireman for a few minutes and learn so much about being a first responder. Take a look at all the fun photos inside that I took. I really appreciate people that have this type of job because boy is it grueling and you have to really know your stuff for sure. Have a great day and be safe out there!
Actor Taylor Kinney (plays Kelly Severide) he is SO DREAMY, hey boo!
I look like a real fireman but chile lol!
Actor David Eigenberg (plays Lieutenant Christopher Herrmann but I loved him as Steve Brady on HBO sit-com Sex and the City) suiting me up. The fireman equipment is extremely heavy and you also have an oxygen tank on your back plus a fireman hat. I was exhausted from just getting dressed lol.
Such a fun cast to hang out with!
The cast showing us a demonstration on how to save a life.
We learned that when it’s zero visibility in a house fire, fireman get down on the floor and they use an ax to guide them through a burning building or home. They hold each other’s boot and form a human chain as they sweep the floor looking for victims. When they find bodies, they put a harness on them and drag them out to safety. It was a great experience learning this and I got to try it.
