THANKS to Firefighters
We want to say THANKS to Firefighters everywhere!!
Firefighters are vital part of the Public Safety community, and this great country would not be the same without your great service!
Firefighters generally prefer to be fighting fires, but the reality is they get called on out far more medical emergencies. In fact, medical calls outnumber fire calls nearly 3-to-1.
Nonetheless, firefighters have one of the most stressful jobs in America.
They fight wildfires, including the devastating Colorado wildfires this year. And they fight structure fires.
Firefighters go the extra mile to save lives at dangerous traffic scenes - like this one in Santa Barbara, CA.
At least one firefighter proudly represented the USA in the 2012 London Olympics!
They invent genius new products - like this water misting station for heat relief.
They passionately care for the community and valiantly support worthy causes - like this cancer fighting non-profit organization.
And sometimes, firefighters are called to protect people from themselves.
So this week, we say THANKS to Firefighters everywhere - whether you are career, volunteer or on-call!!
