Top Issues Facing Responders:
The lack of funding for fire fighting. And it seems to me that we as fire fighter are forgetting what it means to be a fire fighter. We forget its a brotherhood, a family, we are he to help others. Todays fire fighter it seems is out for himself. How can I get ahead, How can I get more time off, How will this benefit me. We are here for each other and for the citizens we protect. Lets go back to the family way, to caring about others and doing our job
