why i chose this career

I chose this career because of how exciting it will be when that first call comes in and I arrive at the burning building it will be a total rush and being able to help people out weather it be holding the hose or going inside the building and pulling someone out of it and it will be nice to meet new people and being able to hang out with may crew at the fire station while I wait for that first call will be fun to
