    Ditto
    - not being able to help/ feeling like you didn't help enough.

    I agree #1 hardest thing is going to a firefighter's funeral. I believe the second hardest thing for me is being injured or unable to perform your job for some reason. There are many things that are hard about being a firefighter, but the reward of satisfaction of helping someone else, and the brotherhood far outweigh the difficulties

    Anything with kids involved, and when you just couldn't do enough.
