    This is simple! The members of my family because without them, I would be nothing. My parent's brought me into this world and took the responsibility of raising me. My brother (a fellow FF/Medic) has been with me to understand all the ups and downs that come with life in emergency services, and last but certainly not least, my wife because she has the hardest job of them all -- putting up with a FF husband!

    Stay safe!

    Growing up, as others have expressed, my hero was my dad, along with the other FFs. I was always one of the "Luckiest guys in the world" getting to go spend the night at the station.
    Nowadays, the list has grown to include anyone who has served our country honorably in uniform; FF/EMS everywhere, both volunteers and professionals; (watch out for a big bolt of lightning!!) the police service.
    But mostly, that patient, young or old, that continues to fight against insurmountable odds for survival.

    Helen Keller.

    With all adversities and handicaps she had, she never let them stand in her way or hold her back. If she can accomplish what she did with her handicaps, there is no limit to what I can do. She also never pitied herself, and I need to remind myself of her when I'm feeling sorry for myself.

    General George S. Patton, General/President George Washington, any Allied Vet from WWII, and, of course, all those men and women who put on either bunkers, a badge, or grab a Medic bag. Thank you all.

    Whatever it is, I didn't do it, and I don't know anything about a fire. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
    Stay safe, boys and girls. It's for keeps out there.

    I don't necessarily know that she was my hero, but the person that comes to mind is my 3rd grade teacher. She instilled in me the belief that I could be anyone I wanted to be with hard work and perseverence. She showed me that I had qualities and talents that shouldn't be wasted. She gave me the courage to be who I wanted to be, and is a lot of the reason I am who I am today. Is that a hero?

    For me when I was growing up, my heroes were the Astronauts. I was constantly keeping track of the space program. Now that I am all grown up (HA!) I don't really know if I have anyone I can call a "hero." I suppose when you get to a point where your "are" what you pretty much are going to "be", you don't seek out a role model as much as you did as a child. I do look up to persons of higher rank than me in my career job in law enforcement... but I don't think "Hero" fits the bill there...

    As a kid my heroes were my Dad, my Grandpops, and the Firemen my Dad serves along with at the OFD.
    Now my heroes are my Dad, my Grandpops, and the Firemen that my Dad, myself, and now my brother serve along with at the OFD.

    Who were/are your heroes?

    With all this talk about heroes and such, I'm curious who you all looked up to as kids and now as adults? The people you wished you could be and admired for the great things they did. The "loose" definition of a hero. I think it would be interesting to see how your views change as you get older.

    Mine as a kid...Ozzie Smith, Tony Pena, and nearly anyone in a uniform (soldiers, FFs, LEO's)

    Today...my grandpa
