“Remarkable feat of heroism”

I don’t think I ever thought that I would go into a burning building until I considered a new journey to become a volunteer firefighter. When faced with that situation, I think people would go in to help someone. 

Sometimes people begin a conversation with me about firefighting when they notice I’m wearing a fire company T-shirt. Many of them give me credit for what we do as firefighters. Many often say they could never go into a burning building. Most also say that they wouldn’t want to do it. I understand that people have their reasons why they would not want to become a firefighter, just like we have our reasons why we do it.
