While the full details of what occurred in the deaths of 19 elite firefighters in Arizona are sill unfolding, it is a poignant reminder of the hazards in fighting fires. Firemen are a special breed who understand the danger involved in fulfilling their responsibilities. Yet they report for duty, try to live normal lives and respond to emergencies that can expose them to harm.

Full-time and part-time volunteer firemen face equal risks. Their locations may differ, but just about every fire, or other emergency, has the potential to do harm to them. They train to be prepared to face the hazards, but unexpected things can happen, such as in Arizona, where highly trained firemen were killed.
