I’ve been laboring for the fire department for the past 5 years.
My dad works for the fire department too, then both of my siblings are going to volunteer when they turn 18.
I’m the oldest in addition to the first to follow in the line of fire fighters. It’s a volunteer position, however I take it very seriously. I’m consistently prepared to go to the scene of the fire in addition to give my life to put out the flames. I have been scared a few times, however I consistently try to maintain my composure. I have to be in charge of the fire or the fire will be in charge of me. I’ve battled many fires in the last month; Right now is the time when the ground is very dry in addition to a lot of fires happen when the ground is dry. There is a new housing development being built out by the interstate. I responded to a call for help on Thursday. Me in addition to my siblings got out of the fire station in less than 2 hours. All of us went to the housing development in addition to there was a large home on fire. There was no a single in the home at the time, thankfully. The home fire was caused by faulty oil furnace wiring. It didn’t take long to realize that the fire originated from the oil furnace area. After the oil furnace fire, the fire marshal wanted to inspect all of the new housing in addition to all of the oil heating systems that had recently been installed. He also wanted to speak with the building contractor in addition to the person that did the labor on the oil furnace in addition to the wiring.
