As a volunteer firefighter, I wish I never had to respond to a fire. When fire strikes, it is accompanied by destruction of property and, far too often, can lead to serious injuries or death to people.
Seeing a neighbour from down the street dead was an ugly scene. Helping to carry a co-worker’s son out of a burning home was tragic. Entering a burning home and finding three people dead was heartbreaking, especially when two of the victims were children.
So many years of potential life lost!
