WHO ARE FIREFIGHTERS?
Firefighters are people who are at once the most fortunate and least fortunate of men.
Firefighters are those who are constantly giving of themselves and expecting nothing in return.
Firefighters are those who must rise above themselves to conquer the most overwhelming situations.
Firefighters sacrifice their lives so that others may live.
Firefighters aren’t heroes; they’re just doing their job.
