A Firefighter's Pledge

I promise concern for others

Willingness for all those in need

I promise courage - courage to face and conquer my fears

Courage to share and endure the ordeal of those who need me

I promise strength - strength of heart to bear whatever burdens

Might be placed upon me

Strength of body to deliver safety

All those placed within my care

I promise the wisdom to lead, the compassion to comfort

And the love to serve unselfishly whenever I am called
