There is an immense amount of thrill and an overwhelming sense of achievement that comes with extinguishing a structure fire, extricating a trapped patient from their vehicle, or even possibly saving a life. The sense of achievement combined with the experience and camaraderie received from the fire and rescue service is often unreal. However, this type of work is not for everyone. Firefighters must have qualities such as bravery, dedication, assertiveness, and above all an ambition to help others in need. Firefighters perform demanding work that tests their abilities in unknown and often hazardous situations.
