Just another day in the life of a Firefighter.
Rolling down the street lights shining, horn blasting, sirens blaring; all you see is a plume of smoke when you turn down the street. You know it's a real one! The excitement starts.Your geared out ready to work. You replay training and experience in your head, thinking of all the tools and things you need to do your job right. Over the air you recieve your orders and you begin to work. Whether fire attack, ventilation or pulling ceiling you know it's going to be taxing. Your hearts pounding, your so hot and every muscle in your body says stop! But you know you must keep going.The lives of many are in you and your crews hand.The faster the fire is out the less damage there is. You hear your partners vibe alert going, it's time to go out. Change bottles out, grab water and back in. Finally after a great fight, the fires out but you are no were near done. Time to find any hot spots and put them out before they rekindle. Moving piles of debre, furniture moved, ceilings pulled down and walls opened. Investigators come and it's time for break down. All the hose needs to be drained, all the tools collected and everything must be wiped down. For your health you need to be wiped down because all the carcinogens you have been exposed to.You look at the time...8 hours passed by. Your tired, hungry and want a shower. But it's back to the station and back in service. Time to continue working you still have many more hours of shift left.The people of your community need you.
As a Fire fighter you see the destruction in people's life.This fire destroyed and displaced so many because of the intentional actions of one individuals.
Its a shame because after the fire so many people lose everything. Family's asking us to at least go into therw apartments to grab medications or anything for them because they now have nothing.
Remember every action has a reaction. -Dani
