He believed he could, and he did.

Cody Slushers’s dream since the age of 4 was to become a firefighter.  With the help of Easterseals Southern Georgia’s Vocational program and the Sylvester Fire Department, he is living his lifelong dream.  Sylvester fire chief, Jack Colby, agreed to train Cody and let him participate along with the fire station personnel.   See Cody’s story here: 

Since the video, Cody has been hard at work!  With the help and encouragement from everyone, we are thrilled to announce that Cody has successfully completed and passed the volunteer firefighter test through the Fire Academy at Albany Technical College in Albany, Georgia.  CODY IS NOW A REGISTERED VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTER!!  Not only is Cody now able to fight fires, but he is now eligible for the Georgia’s Fireman Pension Fund. CONGRATULATIONS CODY!
