A Firefighter’s Pledge
I promise concern–concern for others and
a willingness to help 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 to 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.
