There is one thing that can immediately create fear and
panic and that is a raging fire.
We all know too well the tremendous concern we all
feel when fire breaks out in our home, or that of a neighbour.
What is especially of concern is when we know that small
and defenceless children are potentially involved,
or those of limited mobility including those confined to bed,
wheelchairs, or the elderly. We count on our firefighters to
not only fight the actual fire but to risk their own lives to either save
us or anyone caught in the razing inferno.
Appreciate and applaud these fine and brave people who
risk all each time they enter a fire ridden building, structure or
when involved in fighting out of control forest fires.

Firefighters do not regard themselves as heroes because they do what the business requires.
Chief Edward F. Croker
