Be prepared!

Searching through the internet looking for details of the recent firefighter LODD in Maryland I can’t help but think about preparing for my next shift! Seems like everyday another type of Firefighter emergency comes up. Why is this, I believe it’s because the fire department is called on every type of emergency. From power lines down to swift water rescue we have to be prepared for it all. This makes it easy to get sidetracked from our main job. Fighting Fires! This is a dangerous job that we all know and love. Question is are you prepared? Are you prepared to call a mayday? Are you prepared for a scba emergency? Are you prepared to bail out a third story window? These are just a few questions to ask yourself before your next run. As we say goodbye to a hero we must honor him by preparing ourselves! So others may live!!!
