Firefighting - 905 words
Firefighters put their life in danger every single day to help and save the public. Firefighters must be prepared for the endangers they encounter and be able to respond immediately to a fire or any other emergencies that arises. Because fighting fires is so complex, it requires organization and teamwork. At every emergency scene, firefighters perform specific duties assigned by a superior officer. At fires they connect hose lines to hydrants, operate a pump to high pressure hoses, and position ladders to deliver water to the fire. They also rescue victims and administer emergency medical aid as needed. Firefighters duties may change several times while the company is in action. Sometimes th ...

Should We Have Dropped The Atomic Bomb? - 1,488 words
The atomic bomb killed many innocent people, but it was necessary to end World War II. After World War II began in 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt announced the neutrality of the United States.

Happy New Year - Descriptive - 513 words
Happy New Year For the last seven years Kim had been seeing her high school sweetheart Patrick who was a volunteer firefighter and they were going to get married soon.

A Tribute Dedicated To Firemen - 1,055 words
On a cool afternoon I rang the doorbell to a firehouse located in Phoenix, Arizona. I had feelings of anxiousness and was waiting very impatiently at the door. My preconceptions were that I would speak with a very buff male (probably someone who looked as if they were in the WWF), that I would meet nothing but arrogant cocky guys who wanted to be a bunch of heroes, and that I would see them flying down poles and cute white Dalmatians chasing after their little red engines that could. All of this was thrown to the back of my mind as the door creaked open. A small, brown-haired, friendly woman answered in her casual clothes of a t-shirt and sweats saying, Come on in, youre Lori, right? I nodde ...

Malibu Fires - 1,258 words
Human beings are able to adapt to almost any environment, unfortunately sometimes we take advantage of our natural surroundings. We find ourselves amidst a struggle between our lifestyles and nature. Although we affect nature profoundly with our activities, we in turn are shaped by nature's potent forces. Nature can be brutal to humans, but we must remember that it merely is following its course. As a result, we must learn to coexist with it. Fire is a naturally occurring phenomenon which humans have learned to deal with throughout history. Yet when fire burns uncontrollably, there is great potential for monumental damage to all surrounding biomass. The Malibu wildfires are an example of one ...

... ions that took place throughout the fire ravaged area. Along the eastern ridge of the fire, many high voltage power lines were burnt which eliminated power to homes in the surrounding communities and also presented complications with the fire department's electrically run hydrant system pumps. The fire companies resorted to using water from local swimming pools to put out some of the encroaching flames instead of using the pumped water from the hydrants. Fatigue, injury, and a feeling of vulnerability faced many of the firefighters as they were faced with a major fire that continually jumped from one structure to another. Some fire personnel worked 24 to 36 hours straight in order to pre ...
