Hawaii 5-0 review

Hawaii 5-0 is a criminal show with a lot of action. The characters in the show are very hilarious but our favorite characters are Steve McGarrett and Danny Williams, aka Danno, because whenever they are driving to a crime scene they bicker every single time. They also take partner counseling classes to express how they feel, and to learn to compromise with each other. Danno gets irritated by McGarrett’s crazy driving; he believes that he has some serious issues. Whenever they go on ride along, Danno is always the passenger rider in his own car, which also irritates him.

We don’t have a favorite episode because we enjoy all the episodes, but one of the funniest episodes is in season 2, when McGarrett finds out that the governor is working with his enemy, Wo Fat, and also who Shelburn is. McGarrett’s mom is an an undercover CIA agent who raised Wo Fat when he was younger. Wo Fat and Steve both went all around the world to look for a mysterious thing/person called Shelburn. They eventually find out that Shelburn was Steve’s mom’s undercover name. They both thought that she had died a long time ago.

Danny is a character we all love, he’s funny, calm, and emotional. Danny likes the easy way out of messy situations. One of the people Danny loves is his daughter, Grace. He cares for her and is a wonderful dad. He puts his daughter first and will do anything for her, or anything to save her if she’s in trouble. Danny moved all the way to Hawaii to be closer to his daughter.

Overall, we suggest this show to everyone. It’s a show that will have you wondering what happens next and it isn’t predictable. Every episode is new and interesting. We give this show 5 stars out of 5, so go binge watch it NOW and let us know how you enjoy it.

Minnesota firefighters die from an unexpected heart attack

In a small town in Minnesota, a firefighter died on a Tuesday morning from a unexpected heart attack after his training session. Captain Jeff Vollmer died hours after the Mayor Fire Department was practicing a scenario. He was only 40 years old, and he leaves behind his wife and two children. According to Maetzold, a Channel 9 reporter, Jeff seemed fine and he was fit, from what they could see, meaning he wasn’t sick.

Apparently, Vollmer isn’t the only firefighter who has died from an undiagnosed condition. The last four firefighters, in Minnesota, all died from heart attacks in their late 30s to early 40s. Half of the time, firefighters die from falling off ladders, smoke inhalation or burns, but heart attacks happen most of the time after their shift.

Shane Clifton, a firefighter in Minnesota, died of cardiac arrest at a station house when he was 38 years old. Also, 42-year old Matt Frantz, who was Fire Chief in Rice Lake, died a few hours after a late night fire call.

 

Vollmer died 6 hours after his training, and it is still considered a in the line of duty death under the Survivor Benefit Act of 2003. The act recognized heart attacks as being a in the line of duty event if they are within 24-hours of the shift.
