Firefighters risk their lives every day to ensure public safety. They respond to any number of dangerous situations at a moments’ notice, 24 hours a day and seven days a week. These brave men and women put themselves on the line as they battle blazes, and they save lives and property as they do so.
The reason people become firefighters is that it’s a deeply rewarding job. Many people who are loving and compassionate toward their fellow human beings pursue this dangerous yet fulfilling job. A firefighter’s work isn’t limited to saving human lives, however.
