Nashville Predators enforcer, Wade Belak, has already started preparing for life after the National Hockey League. In May, Belak applied to and was accepted into the Williamson County Fire Rescue Squad, an all-volunteer crew that has served Williamson County for over 40 years, having been established in 1966.
Belak’s application for the training was accepted in July and Belak completed 2 months of classes. When training camp opened in September, the former first round draft pick (12th overall, 1994) still had 6 classes left, which he has since been able to complete. Belak was officially accepted into the Fire Rescue Squad in early October.
