There is no second place prizes in the business of firefighting. On the surface it may look easy. You get to wear cool equipment, race off down the highway in a shiny red fire truck and you get to rescue people from falls, accidents, fires, rivers and so much more. That is how it looks on the surface. In reality you have to have your head on a swivel and work in harmony with firefighting professionals because every move can affect whether you and them go home. To be able to save a life you have to be focused, trained and prepared.
To be the very best in the field of fire you have to have the desire to serve, the courage to act and the ability to perform.
