WHC Media - The new summer ad campaign for MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Do we have stories to tell you.
Chuck has been a firefighter with Washington D.C.'s Fire Department for 12 years. He absolutely loves his job. On April 8, 2011, he was one of five firefighters who fought a two-alarm inferno which raged out of control at an abandoned house in Washington D.C. Chuck was inside the structure when "flashover" occurred (everything in the house reached 2,300 degrees). Chuck was the most severely burned and was the last firefighter to be discharged from MedStar Washington Hospital Center. His career and his hands were saved by the team at MedStar Washington Hospital Center's adult burn center.
