    sitting here reading over some of the responces,I was able to recall some very proud moments that i was part of, all sounds the same, just change some names, ages, etc. I was proud the day i joined the dept. against incredable odds that I'm here. (was born with cerebral palsy, was givin no chance at walking, but i made it I walk,) do anything i want, just made 12 years on dept. i'm now asst. chief. but for me one moment will stand out for a lifetime. I was sitting in a mcdonald's having lunch one day, I'm a vollie so i wasn't in any uniform at the time, I had a small boy and his mother come up to talk to me> Mother said "He just wanted me to come over here and meet you, said you was the fireman that always comes to his school." that to me means all the trouble & time i put in to my fire prevention work was worth it! If a small boy remembers the fireman that comes to his school I'm sure he remembers what the fireman tells him about fire.

      My proudest moment was probably seeing my father win an award for saving a little kids life. He was a captain ay his station and responded to the elementary school across the street from his station. When he arrived there they found a young boy choking on his lunch. My father gave him the hemlich and saved the childs life. For me though as a firefighter my proudest moment would probably have to be just knowing that I am out there doing things that only a select few can do. Knowing that everyday I could save someones life or property just makes me proud to say I am a FIREFIGHTER
      If you cant take the heat then stay out of my way.

        My proudest momemt was the day my son joined the junior fire department and then the first time we went on a call together. Now, I am proud to see him carry on as a firefighter and conduct himself in these forums like a the fine young man he has turned out to be.
        Trey...I love you....be careful....

          Being presented with my 20 year long service and good conduct medal by the Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire (The Queen's Representative) with my family watching. What a day, never to be forgot.

            captstanm1,

            Okay, I'm a little slow. Just made the connection. I was confused on another board when you lauded "Engine_tower1".

                  FF of the year at my old dept., managed to win it despite being away full-time for college. I was proud of my dedication in coming in on weekends to train and making all the calls I could.

                  Number 2: Conquering my ineptitude at driving manual transmissions. After that, I KNOW training can enable anybody to do anything.

                    My proudest moment in the job would have to be being involved in the finding and subsequent rescuing of the only survivor of Australia's worst landslide which claimed 18 lives. After standing beside the firie who some how heard the bloke through 4 cement slabs and over a chainsaw working nearby we preceeded to dig him out until we were relieved by the day usar team, which was real hard to leave site but anyway we came back on 3pm that afternoon and he was still underground and after some minor enlarging of the hole and preparation by medics for extrication, we extricated him and placed him in an ambulance. The cheer that went up through the valley when the village realised we had him out was amazing and gave us real pep-up. The survivor 'Stuart Diver'is going strong and back in the town after surviving 65 hours in sub zero temps and losing his wife beside him in the slide at Thredbo in 1997. Stay safe.
