Call for Help #Firefighter #Fire #Volunteer

My department about to start a training exercise

My department about to start a training exercise

A call in the nighttime
Blasts me from my dreams,
Someone’s in trouble
The radio screams.

Don gear at the station
Before taking a truck,
To find the right driveway
Can sometimes take luck.

I have the training
I’ll be okay,
So I can run towards
While you run away.

My fate’s in my hands
From the training I choose,
Equipment and practice
Between win and lose.

Smell of the smoke,
Dance of the flame,
Puzzles to solve
In areal-life game.

It takes up my time,
Puts me in danger,
But I keep volunteering,
Help neighbor and stranger.
