  " Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives "
 
 
Did you know that many people don’t test their smoke alarms as often as they should? When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. You need working smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Test yours every month!

TRUE CHARACTER IS MEASURED

COURAGE IS THE ONLY TRUE MEASURE OF THE HEART

A Fireman's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God, wherever flame may rage,

Give me strength to save some life, whatever be its age.


Help me embrace a little child, before it is too late,

Or save an older person from, the horror of that fate.


Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout,

And quickly and efficiently, to put the fire out.
 

I want to fill my calling, and to give the best in me,

To guard my every neighbor, and protect his property.
 

And if according to my fate, I am to lose my life,

Please Bless with your protecting hand, my children

And my wife.
