    Prayers needed for Fire Fighter

    This Fire Fighter is also a member of Missouri Task Force 1 Urban Search & Rescue team.


    KSDK -- A local firefighter is in stable condition after falling through the roof of a burning home. That firefighter is one of two injured during a blaze just west of Union, Missouri.

    The firefighters were in very dangerous situation when the roof collapsed under them.

    One firefighter was treated and released, but the other is still being treated for second and third degree burns.

    A spokesman for the Union Fire Protection District said they got a call around 9:45 a.m. Thursday. A home was on fire in the 600 block of Everet Lane, just off Highway AJ.

    By the time crews got to the scene, flames and smoke were coming out of the home. Firefighters tried to get the situation under control.

    Two men were sent onto the roof, as the fire got into an attic area, and that's when the accident occurred.

    As a former firefighter I hate to read these types of stories. I hope he has some of the best medical professionals doing their best to save his life.

    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    PRAYERS SENT!!

    My brother Joe just retired as a firefighter in the metro Detroit area.
    This was one of my fears.

    For all those who have never read the firemans prayer,
    Here it is;

    FIREFIGHTER'S PRAYER
    When I'm called to duty God wherever flames may rage
    grant me the strength to save a life whatever be its age
    Help me to 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 to hear the weakest shout
    and quickly and efficiently put the fire out
    I want to fill my calling Lord and give the best in me
    to guard my every neighbor and protect his property
    And if according to your will I am to lose my life
    God bless with your protecting hand my children and my wife


    All you smoke eaters and EMS are my unsung heros
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy." -- Ernest Benn

    Amen.

    When I was doing EMT-P rotations way back when, we did some time inthe burn unit at our referral hospital. One thing I always appreciated about them was that no matter what, the burn unit was never closed to a firefighter and that if a firefighter was admitted the director of the unit was paged to attend the case no matter what time of day or night it was.

    Thanks guys!!!

    It was reported that he was released today with no respiratory compromise. He will have an extended recovery from his injuries, however he is one very lucky man.

    I am truly glad to hear that he is out of the hospital, burns can take a long time to heal. I know what burns feel like as a firefighter. Anyway, may God grant him a speedy recovery.
    God bless our troops!
