Well I'm here to tell you that yes, it is in fact very dangerous. And at times it can be very stressful. However, I don't do it for the stereotypical image of pulling little Sally out of a burning building. But don't get me wrong, I would have her unfortunate ass out of that building faster than you could say I think my house is on fire.
Then why do you do…

"Life is full of opportunities for us to take on battles. There are times when it is important for us to go to battle; Take a stance for causes that we believe in; stand up for what is right. Those times are mountains worth dying on. There are other mountains that are not worth the battle. Some disagreements and conflicts simply are not worth the fight. Maybe the issue is not that significant, not an issue of moral charictor or integrity. Maybe the risks of battle far out weigh the rewards…Continue

As a result, a task force was created and a 22 month investigation brought to justice a serial arsonist that was responsible for over 300 fires. This collaborative effort was featured on a episode of Forensic Files…Continue
