    Default Great quote

    I saw this on safefirefighter.com...
    “If everyone showed up at fires naked, I guarantee no one would get hurt… (instead) they give us helmets on our first day. Our job is risky, sometimes we need to accept that and do our job” (Anonymous)
    ‎"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
    Lt. Ray McCormack, FDNY

    Another two quotes from the same site...
    If you do not want to risk your life for your neighbors please turn in your badge, your pager, your gear, and your self-proclaimed title of “hero”. No one put a gun to your head and said, ‘You will be a firefighter!’” (The Fire Service Warrior, From “We Hold These Truths to be Self-Evident”, December 27, 2010)

    Am I being effective in my efforts or am I merely showing up in my fireman costume to watch a house burn down?” (Joe Brown, www.justlookingbusy.wordpress.com)
