Introduction

Firefighters Shining above all other living species in the world, wearing yellow suits and red boots, are firefighters. I was at the age of two when I first saw them, and my life hasn't been the same since. I remember waking up in the middle of the night to the shriek of the fire alarm. It was absolutely terrifying, but before I knew it, screaming sirens were approaching. A red truck with flashing lights appeared, and I suddenly felt assured as I saw the fearless firefighters emerging from the truck, ready to save the day. Whether they're putting out fires, teachings kids, or even saving cats from trees, there is no job that firefighters can't accomplish. If you think police officers are heroes, think again. Firefighters put out fires, help the community, and most of all, they are dedicated. ...read more.

Not only do firefighters deal with fires in buildings, they also deal with landscape fires, such as fires in forests and rural areas. Forest fires are devastating, and are difficult to manage. Large areas of land would be ruined if firefighters weren't there to stop the fire. As a result of distinguishing fires, firefighters save lives, protect buildings, and maintain our environment. The acts of firefighters go beyond just dealing with fires. In fact, fires are only 20% of what firefighters are involved with. Firefighters are highly trained to be able to respond instantly to any emergency situation. A large portion of the firefighter profession involves fulfilling requests of the Emergency Medical service, which may involve dealing with heart attacks and car accidents. Firefighters are also devoted to acts of public service. This incorporates carrying-out the building inspection procedures, and ensuring that laws regarding fire safety are followed. ...read more.

Conclusion

Firefighters have to respond to any situation, no matter what the circumstances are. Running into burning buildings to save strangers is typical for firefighters. A heroic act like that requires courage that most people don't have. Dealing with fire, a formidable substance, is no easy task. Firefighters need to be dedicated and brave, considering their safety is always at risk during the many hours they work. There is nobody else like firefighters. The spectacular, heroic ways of firefighters put police officers and all other species in this world to shame. Unlike other ordinary people, firefighters stop fires and save lives! No matter what your age is, young or old, firefighters are people you can look up to. Ever since that fateful day when I was two, my love for firefighters has only grown. The world just wouldn't be the same without firefighters. ?? ?? ?? ?? June 1, 2009 English Jennifer Qing ...read more.
