The Firefighter Within

Never give up.
Never give in.
Fight 'til you lose or fight 'til you win.
Never let up.
Never let down.
Never let the frighten see you frown.
Wield your weapons.
Conquer your fears.
Work 'til your sweat replaces their tears.
Learn from your losses.
Savor your wins.
Prepare for the next one.
And battle again.

That is the firefighter within.

The Last Command

ONCE I HAD A DREAM WHILE I WAS SLEEPING

THAT THE WHOLE WORLD PASSED AWAY

AND THE CHIEF OF ALL CREATION, WORKED THE SCENE THAT

JUDGEMENT DAY.

ASSISTANT CHIEF ANGELS HAD THEIR SECTORS,

THEY WERE HOLDING THEM TO THE… Continue

He's a fireman.

He puts it all on the line when the bell rings.

A fireman is at once the most fortunate and the least fortunate of men.

He's a man who saves lives because he has seen too much death.

He's… Continue

I Wish You Could

I wish you could see the sadness of a business man as his livelihood goes up in flames or that family returning home, only to find their house and belongings damaged or destroyed.



I wish you could know what it is to search a burning bedroom for trapped children, flames rolling above your head, your palms and knees burning as you crawl, the floor sagging under your weight as the kitchen beneath you burns.



I wish you could comprehend a wife's horror at 3 A.M. as I check her… Continue

Fallen Brother

The fire tone rang.....FIRE!

Adrenaline, excitement, the love of the challenge

Sirens wail and it comes into sight,

Flames and smoke rising into the night.

All geared up, ready to save, ready to fight.

Hose in hand - heads straight for the danger.

He kicked the door in - knew just what to do

The fire and smoke pouring out-

He tucked his head down and dove in.

They tried so hard to find him-

But the fire was just too strong-

We lost him in… Continue
