It's a typical scene at fire departments everywhere: lockers lining the garage, with coats hanging and boots at the ready for quick changes when an emergency calls. But at the Odenton Volunteer Fire Company one boot has a leg sticking out of it. Firefighter William Fisher returned to work at Odenton this month, eight months after having his right leg amputated below the knee, the result of a lingering injury from his Army service in Iraq. After intense rehabilitation, seemingly endless paperwork to prove that he met the National Fire Protection Association standards, and extensive work with a company to develop a special boot for his prosthetic leg, Fisher printed out dozens of copies of a certification declaring him fit for duty and placed them in everyone's mailbox at the station.
