The Volunteer Firefighter

Volunteer Firefighters are a breed unto themselves.
Whoever heard of a person who is willing to be on twenty-four hour duty without pay for the dubious privilege of protecting their neighbor’s property?
Whoever heard of a person who will dash from their desk and ride a “fire wagon” to the scene of the alarm ruining their suit, neglecting their business, risking their life and exhausting
themselves physically, not for money but because they believe
in serving their community.
Whoever heard of a person who will give up their favorite TV
show, postpone some reading or some “do it yourself” house
chores they’ve been planning (plus sacrifice their evenings
with their family) just to attend a meeting where they learn
how to function as a volunteer servant on behalf of their
fellow man?
Whoever heard (in this day and age) of a person who is crazy
enough to be worrying about the other fellows?
Well, if you don’t know the answer to those questions, look
around our firehouse.
You’ll see people who aren’t out protesting and complaining
because they’re too busy living up to the image of a good
You’ll see people just like yourself who care what happens to their neighbors and their community and their country.

Do you really think you have what it takes?

Do you think you can take the challenge?

Do you think you can take the pressure?

Do you think you can take the heat?

The real question is are you ready?
