HARD TO PUT INTO WORDS

ON BEHALF OF THE ENTIRE STAFF AT FIRE MUTUAL AID, AFTER YESTERDAY’S TRAGEDY WE WOULD LIKE TO SEND OUR CONDOLENCES TO THE BOSTON FIRE DEPARTMENT, BOSTON FIRE ALARM AND IAFF LOCAL 718.
The Firefighter’s Prayer
When I am called to duty, God, whenever flames may rage;
Give me strength to save some life, whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child before it is too late
Or save an older person from the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout,
And quickly and efficiently to put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me,
To guard my every neighbor and protect his property.
And if, according to my fate, I am to lose my life;
Please bless with your protecting hand
my children and my wife.
