Volunteer Firefighters

Many people think that volunteer firefighters do what they do because they have to, but they are wrong. Volunteer firefighters do their job because they like to help people.Every year fire departments recruit 3,900 volunteers each year. Many communities rely on volunteer firefighters to keep them safe. There are so many risks of being a volunteer firefighter some of them are, getting cancer from all the smoke or getting trapped in a burning house.

Interview with Rob Larson

So many firefighters love what they do. I talked to my dad who is a volunteer firefighter and is one of the captains. He says that they have to train on new things every year. He also says that they all risk their lives every time they go on a call.
