Most children are afraid of a firefighter in full turnout gear, and most pictures taken of firefighters are that of the "worst scenario." In this photo, Mr. Mike Simone caught his son, Michael Joseph Simone, sleeping peacefully on his turnout gear; reminding us that firefighting photos can also remind us of the serenity, and peace that we bring to others in their time of need.

Mike Simone is a volunteer firefighter with Blackwood Fire Company in Blackwood, New Jersey.
