When you think of heroes, the fireman has long served the position of the real life Superman. For a child trapped inside a collapsed burning building, it is more than just an honorable rescue, it’s a duty towards being a savior of life.
With over one million firefighters in the U.S., and more than 800,000 of them being volunteers, the chances of being around an everyday hero are quite high.
Not to mention, so are the blazing temperatures of fire they courageously walk through. And while it may seem simple at first glance, the truth is fighting fires is a complex and dangerous process.
