Jason Patton: ‘Nothing comes natural to me at all’

The first firefighter-influencer of the modern era shares how his early speaking nerves transformed into a love of making comedy videos

Sponsored by

FireRescue1’s Better Every Shift Podcast spotlights the passion and perseverance of first responders. Hosted by Madison (Wisconsin) Firefighter Aaron Zamzow and FireRescue1 Editor-in-Chief Janelle Foskett, the show brings kitchen table conversations to the airwaves, always focused on solutions, positivity and the realities of station life.

Grab yourself a caffeinated beverage because today’s podcast features high-octane firefighter Jason Patton, perhaps the first firefighter-influencer of the YouTube viral-video era – a familiar face to any firefighter not living under a rock. Patton reveals his favorite Fire Department Chronicles video to film, the call that made him laugh the hardest (and later served as great material for a video), plus the video that put him on the map.

Plus, we get into all this:

  • His best advice for firefighters getting into the social media space
  • How he chooses his passion projects
  • “Micro-dosing happiness” and his go-to stress reliever

What else …

  • Don’t miss: The hilarious story of his first attempt to teach a CPR class
  • Episode power quote: “I’m not making fun of people. I’m making fun of myself. That is me!”
  • Hot seat sneak peek: A recent moment of frustration – and why $250 isn’t that much in context
