Firefighters

They Stayed!



The images above depict the fires burning in downtown Galveston and Pasadena (suberb of Houston), respectively, as Rita made landfall last night. Look at the photos ... There are firefighters fighting the fires! They stayed, braved the storm and did their jobs!

I am constantly and consistently amazed by the bravery and "can do" attitude of firefighters. Way to go, guys.

To few people realize that whatever happens, whenever it happens, however it happens, and to whomever it happens firefighters are called to put it out, open it up, bandage it, care for it, help it, or keep it from happening again. In the recent cases of the hurricanes we have to let our families evacuate or brace themselves by themselves while we stay and provide the care we guarantee any day of the year no matter the conditions. This is who we are, what we do, and everything we are about. In the case of Katrina there were firefighters who lost their lives because it was their job to stay and protect lives and property. Some firefighters lost family, loved ones, their houses, pets, etc. Thank you for your post and educating people that no matter the weather or whatever we always show up when we are called. Thanks.

You're thanking me? You're the ones that we need to thank.

In fact, our church is having a thank you breakfast next Sat. for firefighters and police in the area.

Again, thank you!
