Volunteers Prayer:

When I am called to duty, God, wherever flame may rage, Give me strength to save some life, whatever be its age. 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 life & property.
