We do amazing things as firefighters. We see and are immersed in exciting, rewarding, and dangerous activities. Prepare to do your job well. Train throughout your career to be better at your job every day. From line firefighters, to company officers, to district chiefs, to administrative officers; prepare and perform the best you can. If you do that, then you have something to be proud of, and, more importantly, the citizens who you work for have a firefighter and a fire department to be proud of. Most firefighters and fire departments strive to be the best. But, we all can do better. Perform to credit yourself, your department, and the fire service. Make that a part of your department's proud tradition.
