The Firefighter Rescue Plan: How to call for help?

The Firefighter Rescue Plan: How to call for help?

The Firefighter Rescue Plan: How to call for help? Let us consider each part of this scenario as one who has become lost in the ‘fires of life’: A sudden and unexpected calamity occurs in our life and we rush in to prevent any further harm without thought of a back-up plan.  Then the situation takes a turn for the worse and the world “collapses” around us. In this moment, we feel “pinned down” by the weight of this problem.  […]

The Be-attitudes of Brotherhood: #4. Be enthusiastic- BE into the job.

The Be-attitudes of Brotherhood: #4. Be enthusiastic- BE into the job.

By Brother Stone: Be-Attitude #4 Be-Enthusiastic! In the previous three Be-Attitudes we have been building on what characteristics or attitudes are found in one who practices true brotherhood. Be-Attitude #4 is a defining characteristic of one who is a firefighter versus one who is an employee. It is about being into the job; or simply stated “It is one who is genuinely sincere, passionate, and authentic about their calling. We must find what it is that excites us and pursue […]

Facing Hard Times? Help is on the way!

Facing Hard Times? Help is on the way!

“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character, and character hope. “ Romans 5:3 How do we glory in our sufferings? Not many of us look at the problems of life as something to be happy about. As firefighters, we solve problems for others but respond differently when they affect us. Why is this? As a firefighter, we understand this concept better than we would like to admit. We […]

The Rescue of Our Hearts

The Rescue of Our Hearts

“For whoever will call upon the name of The Lord will be saved” Romans 10:13 Consider this: As Firefighters, we are in the business of saving lives. Have we ever stopped to think about “who will save us?” But many will say: “I don’t need to be saved!” We have all have seen people fall: from the rich and the famous.. from the poor to the politicians.., from our leaders in our homes… to the leaders in our daily lives.

Spotlight on Brotherhood: Share the Load Program

Share The Load Program: Featuring Mark Lamplugh Jr. from 360 Wellness & The National Volunteer Council’s Share The Load program As first responders, we face continual exposure to stress throughout our careers. It is well known that first responders have a higher rate of heart attacks, stress related disorders (PTSD, anxiety & depression, and other unhealthy coping mechanisms), and those that answer the call for help seldom make the call when they face down the ‘fires’ of their lives. Firefighters […]

Have you become lost in the #fires of life?

Have you become lost in the #fires of life?

Picture these words in your mind: Separated, darkness surrounds you, your air is running out, and then you see it: the way out! Have you ever been lost in a fire? Or more commonly: Have you become lost in the fire service? Many of us started out with a vibrant passion with seemingly unstoppable ambition only to find ourselves feeling lost and alone. Those around us seem paralyzed and impervious to encouragement. In a profession that deals in adversity, we […]

The Bridge to the Broken Heart

The Bridge to the Broken Heart

Firefighters function together despite differences, beliefs, or personal preferences. We are able to put aside our differences and function as one towards a common goal of serving our fellow man. Take a team of firefighters who have never met and place them on an apparatus and it is amazing how quickly they can come together as a team.
