Volunteer Firefighter

Taken during training it shows a firefighter on the second floor in the "Burn Tower" surrounded by fire while learning the best way to deal with and control the uncontrollable. Almost 70% of our nations firefighters are volunteer. They use their free time to train, and leave their families at any time day or night to risk their lives for a complete stranger and ask for nothing in return.
