Flashing lights, loud sirens, the adrenaline rush as you speed down the street (similar to the TV show Chicago Fire), this is what some days look like for our firefighters and paramedics. They are the first to arrive at the scene of an emergency and  most times it’s very dangerous. 

Hear first-hand about the myths and truths in regards to required physical training, what day-to-day duties include, how tight the firefighter/paramedic family is, and how they work together. Most importantly, learn about the mental strength required for these courageous careers. Bonus: explore the inside of an emergency response vehicle these professionals use to save lives.
