I’ve been a volunteer firefighter for 13 years. My dad was a volunteer firefighter for 33 years. I’ve never known a life outside of the fire department. I know what it’s like to leave your family, miss holidays, and drop everything to answer the call. It’s my honour and privilege to serve.
As I watched the events unfolding in Texas last night, my heart was breaking. I’ve been in a few scary situations in my years of service, but I’ve never experienced anything close to the devastation my brothers in West, Texas responded to last night. I hope I never have to see or do anything like that. But if the call does come in, I’ll be ready.

This special fireman’s prayers is one that I’ve kept close to me my entire career. I’d appreciate if you’d take a moment to share this post in your social network and say a prayer for the firefighters and other first responders who answered the call.
