    When i'm called to duty,God
    wherever flames may rage.

    Give me strength to save a life
    whatever be its age.

    Help me embrace a little child
    before it is to late

    Or save an older person from
    the horror of that fate.

    Enabble me to be alert
    And quickly and efficiently
    to put the fir out.

    I want to fill my calling and
    to give the best in me.

    To guard my every neighbor
    and protect their property.

    And if according to your will
    i have to lose my life,

    Please bless with your protecting hand
    my children and my wife.

    amen!

    Nice one. Hear it all the time but never tire of it. I've been a volunteer fireman for 10 years.
