Firefighting is a career that can make you feel proud and accomplished, and it is a career in which I have a lot of respect for. In order to be a firefighter you must be in shape, prepared, experienced, and ready to deal with your job emotionally as well as physically.

After visiting some actual fire departments, I realized as a firefighter you certainly have a lot to be proud of.

I know I have a long way to go until I am truly ready to be a firefighter. There were a few times when I was just about ready to give up and didn’t think I was able to handle the tasks I was given. Firefighting takes constant training, and there are always new techniques that are being brought into the fire department. So far in class I’ve had to overcome many fears, such as embarrassment, heights and new ideas I was not used to. The students in class are usually helpful and much of the class is also new to them, which helps in itself not feeling alone. I also enjoyed learning to work in teams and think this has been a good learning experience.
Many times how well you do your job can depend on your physical health. If you begin to slack on health you can easily notice a difference on the quickness and efficiency in your work. You must exercise on a regular basis so you are able to perform the necessary tasks in the most stressful of situations. Not only must you be able to perform these tasks, but also you must be able to endure it for long periods of time. You must learn your weaknesses and your strengths so you are work at your best at all times. Staying in shape can also help your teammates, so you don’t put them in dangerous situations.
In the past, most people thought firefighters had a pretty easy career. Much of the time they were off work or just laying back waiting for
Dark thick plumes of smoke rises into the sky, a large crowd has gathered, and is watching in awe. As a large building is being engulfed in flames. Boom!! A large explosion comes from several of the upper floors where one of the firemen was. A gasp arises from the crowd. Then the fire fighter runs out of the building carrying a man that was trapped in the inferno. A hero to me is someone that is brave, responsible, kind, and outgoing.
My heroes are firefighters because they are brave and do acts of heroism on a daily basis. They risk their lives to save yours and others, and they do it without think of them selves. If you are trapped in a burning building thinking that you are going to die then you see a firemen coming for you, you know that you have a very, very good chance of getting out alive. They put themselves on the line.

A way to describe a firefighter is that they are outgoing in several different ways. They try their best to get you out alive. There is no such thing as a racist firemen. Every one matters its like the motto the marines use no man is left behind. In a way they give the greatest gift to you when sometimes they die because of some one else's stupid mistake.
They are also responsible they have to work risking their lives fourteen days then they get the same amount of time off. They need to help they are required to but they do it just because they like to save people. They are also very, very kind you will never meet a fire fighter that says he is a criminal in not going to save him or that person is rude to people he deserves to die.
My heroes are firemen they are courageous, give a lot, very, very responsible, and most importantly they are kind. They don't judge people they save people and they love ding it. So if your stuck inside a large building that has been engulfed in flames there is a very good bet that a firemen or women will come and pull you out they risk their lives for us that is why they are my heroes and some other peoples too.
