Behind the Badge: Huddleston

BEDFORD COUNTY, Va. - Volunteer firefighters and medics know how to juggle a lot of work. 

Wayne Overstreet is busy in Huddleston -- he's the Assistant Chief of Huddleston Volunteer Fire Department, he serves with lifesaving crew, he's a farmer and he has another full-time job. 

"My father's been in it for over 50 years and that's how I got started and I just stuck with it since. It just gets in your blood and cant get it out," said Overstreet. "The adrenaline still gets to pumping, especially if it's something serious or if it's somebody you know."
