Fire Fighters Prayer
(I did not write this poem, it has been recorded and venerated here just the same as it is written and carved in the public monument to Fire Fighters.)
FIRE FIGHTER’S PRAYER
I am called to duty,
God, whenever flames may rage;
give me strength to save some life,
whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child
before it is too late,
or save an older person
from the horror of that fate
Enable me to be alert
and hear the weakest shout,
and quickly and efficiently
to put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling
and to give the best in me;
To guard my every neighbour,
and protect his property.
And if, according to my fate,
I am to lose my life;
Please, bless with your protecting hand,
my family and those I’ve loved in life.

Fact: fire trucks are awesome. To prove it, we've assembled a gallery of the coolest firetrucks and firetruck technology, including fire-guns, fire-bikes and fire-tanks. Yes, really.
To be Respected ... Supported ... and Remembered
A Noble, Selfless, and Professional Trade.
I am not a firefighter, but I proudly know some.
Firefighters are often first on the scene of Emergency calls, even before Police or Ambulance. Needless to say, they have been trained in many aspects of Rescue Operations, but their specialty is fighting fires. This is an inherently dangerous occupation, but Professional Firefighters view it as an opportunity to unselfishly serve the public with only their best abilities and training. Their compensation is a reward greater than just monetary gain; it is mostly the satisfaction of knowing that they have protected the lives and properties of their fellow citizens and others in need to the best of their well-trained ability and talent, which is noble indeed.
I think all firefighters are great; and many of them are true heroes from the heart of this land who have risked their lives in order to save others in perilous and dangerous circumstance - and they are ready to do it again on a daily basis! That’s awesome! Here’s to them! Support your local Firefighters - yield right away, and be careful out there!
I pay specific homage to the lives and memories of the Fire Fighters and Emergency Workers who gave the ultimate sacrifice on Tuesday September 11, in the year of our Lord 2001. God bless their living spirits, and let them Rest in Peace.
