Smokey Bear Commercial 2011


To me, personality means being a dependable person . I like working on a team. I'm also competitive and and enjoy working outside. I like taking risk ,so that's why for my career I chose a forest fire fighter or a normal fire fighter.For education you will need to be good at math and science and course designing. I want to do this job because I want to help save the wildlife and the trees. I think Forest firefighters have a good salary $45,970 on average.

One of the reasons why I want to be a forest firefighter is because I like putting out fires.When I was a kid my brother used to make fires and I always grabbed the water hose and put out the fire.I remember one time my brother made a fire and I started stomping on the fire and my brother kicked the fire and the fire caught my pants and my pants were on fire so I took my pants off and grabbed the hose and put out the fire and sprayed my brother.

Another reason why I want to be a forest fire fighter is because I like working on a team to get the job finished.For example on the football team you work together to win the game. I also like working with tools like for example using the axe to cut down trees.

I think I would fit in to be a forest firefighter Because I like working outside and I'm a physical worker. I like moving around and carrying weights.
