Hometown Glory is the true story of a small town Fire Department in the 70's. The town was expanding and the need for increased fire service led to a revolutionary idea - have teenage boys as young as 14 become the protectors of the city. With training from the slightly older firefighters after-school, weekend training sessions at a Fire Academy as well as Memphis Fire Department's training center, the high schoolers were trained as professional firefighters putting their lives on the line in service to the community. It is the story about the Fire Chief who was a mentor and a father figure to these boys, the horrific things they saw and the maturing of not only a city, but the young men that protected it. Before they were men, they were already heroes.
