    Default The "New" Firefighter Song


    Paul Cummings, a firefighter in Western New York State, wrote this song after responding to a fatal apartment fire a few days after the birth of his daughter. Paul attempted entry into the apartment but had to back out due to the intensity of the fire.

    A few days later, Paul composed this song as a way to move himself past what he had experienced and witnessed. He wrote it as a way to make sense of what exactly his job and duty was. The song was never intended to be heard but not long after letting a few of his fellow firefighters hear it, the song had spread nationwide.

    Paul then started “The American Firehouse Tour”. The tour was designed to take the profit from the song and turn it into a nationwide salute to Firefighters. Paul began traveling the country helping fire departments raise money, boost morale, and honor those who hadd fallen in the line of duty. The tour ran from 2010 – 2012.

    The tour and song found new life on Christmas Eve, 2012, when four firefighters were ambushed on the scene of a structure fire just outside of his hometown. That tragedy was in West Webster, NY. The song started being used as a tool to heal so Paul decided to get it re-recorded as a gift to who he considers some of the greatest people on earth.

    2013 is slated to be the biggest year of the tour. Coast to coast, we will be traveling the country once again putting some attention on people who go over and beyond to help their fellow citizens. We are making a push to radio to help put them all in the spotlight with the general public.

    No offence mate, but this is not new. This is actually several years old! Nobody likes an advertisement and that is all your post is.

    It's a new version that we just recorded. It is NOT an advertisement otherwise I'd a posted a BUY link. We spent our own money to give the song a face lift for everyone who likes it. I am NOT in this forum to sell anything.

    Merely a way to show everyone what we did...

    Thanks though!
