The job of a firefighter may not be what you think. Fighting fires
is only a small part of what firefighters do. As a matter of fact,
only 20% of 9-1-1 calls are fire related. The other 80% are requests
for Emergency Medical Service (EMS) such as heart attacks, car
accidents, home accidents, drowning's, etc.
Duties are not limited to responding to calls. Firefighters provide
a wide variety of other services during their work shift. Below is a
partial of list of some of these duties.
