WOMEN FIREFIGHTERS

IS IT HARDER TO BE A FEMALE FIREFIGHTER THEN A MALE?

WHO AM I?

My name is Gelisyanna Plakio, i am 18 years old, i am a senior, the reason i picked to do this kind of blog is because i want to be a firefighter after i graduate, the reason i would love to be a firefighter is because i really love how they save peoples life. If i can't be a fire fighter i would like to go to school for culinary arts, because i like to cook different types of foods.

what i hope others will gain...

I HOPE OTHERS WILL GAIN HOW WOMEN FIREFIGHTERS TRAIN THE SAME WAY AS MEN BUT ITS MORE HARDER FOR A WOMEN THEN A MEN. ALSO I WANT YOU TO LEARN WHY ITS HARDER FOR A WOMEN THEN A MEN.

WHAT I HOPE TO GAIN...

THE THINGS THAT I WANT TO GAIN IS HOW THE WOMEN IS TRAINED AND WHAT KIND OF THINGS THEY GO THROUGH, FOR EXAMPLE HOW THEY GET TREATED, WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO IN ORDER TO BE IN THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT. HOW THEY MAINTAIN THERE WIEGHT.

A Firefighter's Tears

The alarm rang, as it had so many times before.
He was the first of the firefighters up and out,
Awakened from his bed at the station
By the clanging of the bell.
Engine 12 pulled out of the hall,
Dispatch paged another station.
And all the firemen aboard the truck
Were tensed with anticipation
" It's gonna be a nice 'un, boys,"
He said as he donned his gear.
And the young bucks smiled at him
As they drew ever near.
They turned onto his own street
And he could see the fire's work
He hoped their mother woke his kids
To see their dad at work.
His heart sank as he saw the home
That he so dearly loved
Going up in Smoke and Flames
As he donned his gloves.
Aggressively he hit the fire
And searched the rooms above.
And with a flare of personal vengeance
He saved what remained of his home.
As he left the world of flaming hell
He saw his little girl
He ran quickly to her side and said,
"Honey, Daddy's here."
He would never forget what next she said:
As he held her close,
"I love you, Daddy," she whimpered,
And he began to weep.
She died in his arms that night...
The others, later on....
His comrades gave him their respects
but his Family was gone.
He sits alone at the station, now,
There's no more spring in his step.
He stays detached from his fellows
to avoid once again being hurt.
He risks it all in fires, now,
No more concerns for his safety.
He has taken a solemn vow.
He won't let it happen to another,
as long as he's around.

Interview with Mr.McClaine

Does women have it harder then men? yes the women have it harder then men, its harder because its a lot of lifting and some of the women don't be prepared, and its typically a mens job.
