I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to a be a fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the fireman has to do believe that his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts, the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even of supreme sacrifice.- Chief Edward F. Croker


In Honor Of Those Lost

 The Fireman's Prayer

When duty call's me, oh Lord, 

Wherever Flames may rage, 
Give me the 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 oh Lord, guide my every move, 
for life is so precious, 
please don't let us loose.

I want to fill my calling and 
To give the best in me 
To guard my every neighbor 
And protect their property

And if according to thy will, 
That I must give my life, 
Then with thy protecting hand my Lord, 
I pray thee, protect my children and my wife.






    Our enemies have made the mistake that America’s 
    enemies always make. They saw liberty and thought 
    they saw weakness. And now, they see defeat. 
    --George W. Bush, President of the United States.
