Complements of the season fellow firefighters.I am happy since I dicovered this site.Some of us have been talking with me.I am wondering why firefighters cannot be recognised in Nigeria just like in other countries.They are not even recognised even by the government.They are excluded from other paramilitary groupd in Nigeria.they are even the least paid workers in the country even after harzadous works they do.Can it be believed that up till today in nigeria that Firefighter are still been paid #10.00 (ten naira) as harzadous allowance?

Please I need advice on what to do to change the face of this job in my country.I know that I cant do it alone.This is a job I love so much.CAN FIREFIGHTERS EVER BE LIKE THOSE IN OTHER COUNTRIES? With what I am seeing on the net about Firefighters in other countries,I wonder when it will be.

Even at all these anomallies I still love the job,that I ve have to enter into 20 feet pit toilet to rescue a baby without any thing.I later came out safely but I know what I passed through.

Please I still need to improve myself in the areas of fire but it is not always possible here.Someone should tell me what to do.

Perhaps you could get the public to support your cause. I would think the people that you protect every day would rally behind your cause and help you and your firefighters get the recognition and pay that you deserve. I wish you the best of luck my friend. God bless you and stay safe!

I know that here in the states we cant begin to understand what you are dealing with but I do understand dealing with the public and all you can do is be the best. Train hard, work hard, and every chance you get to do community service. Be seen as much as possiable working in the community, as a department in uniform. Helping the public will improve there image of you and your fire department. I am not saying this will help out for you quickly but it will help over time.
