Welcome to the website.

"I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a firefighter. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the firefighter has to do, believe that his is a noble calling. There is an adage which says that, "Nothing can be destroyed except by fire." We strive to preserve from destruction the wealth of the world which is the product of the industry of men, necessary for the comfort of both the rich and the poor. We are defenders from fires of the art which has beautified the world, the product of the genius of men and the means of refinement of mankind. (But, above all; our proudest endeavor is to save lives of men-the work of God Himself. Under the impulse of such thoughts, the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even at the supreme sacrifice. Such considerations may not strike the average mind, but they are sufficient to fill to the limit our ambition in life and to make us serve the general purpose of human society."

-- Chief Edward F. Croker FDNY circa 1910

As emergency responders we are dedicated to saving lives and property and we consider it an honour to serve in that capacity. We don't ask for anything in return instead we wish to educate and train the general public out there. Only through education is it possible to minimise and hopefully prevent loss of life and property.

Fire fighters do not regard themselves as heroes, they only do what the job requires.

This website is dedicated to all fire fighters across the world performing their duties on a daily basis without fail.
