As firefighters, we represent one of the most intuitively understood natural commitments, one of those natural laws. We protect perhaps the most significant of all the natural laws.

That in times of trouble there is someone you can call, even if you are all alone…and that when we come, you are no longer a stranger. You are no longer alone. Your problem is no longer just your problem – it’s our problem. We have sworn to help both victim and perpetrator without judgment and without hesitation.
