A Fireman's Prayer
Whenever flames may rage
Give me the strength to save some life
Whatever be its age
Help me 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
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 his property
And if according to my fate
I am to lose my life
Please bless with your protecting hand
My children and my wife...
Seven percent of fatal home smoking fire
victims whose smoking materials started
the fire were using medical oxygen.
It is estimated that over 39 percent of residential fires and 52 percent of residential fatalities occur in homes with no smoke alarms!
Over 90 percent of U.S. homes have at least one smoke alarm. However, these alarms are not always properly maintained and as a result might not work in an emergency. There has been a disturbing increase over the last ten years in the number of fires that occur in homes with non-functioning alarms.

Through the purchase of your ticket/vouchers you are enabling us to carry on with the many outstanding projects and other member benefits that are close to the heart of the fire fighters. Some of these projects are:
I would like to personally take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of the Professional Fire Fighters and
Paramedics of North Carolina for agreeing to support our fundraising drive. It is your support that will help us with our many
programs. Our association represents over 3,200 professional fire fighters, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians in
their efforts to take a pro-active approach to fire safety laws and community services throughout the state. We represent the
individual members, not the agencies.
Contributions to the Professional Fire Fighters and Paramedics of North Carolina are not deductible as charitable
contributions for federal income tax purposes. While our association is not a tax-deductible charity, it is a non-profit organization,
and we feel our programs are very important. We hope that by becoming a supporter, you are saying you feel they are
important as well. Although this is a statewide organization, which includes your local fire fighters’ organization funds will
benefit your local fire fighters and the communities they serve.
Your support means a lot. We sincerely hope that our actions will warrant your continued support in the future. The
fire fighters of our nation are rated as having one of the most hazardous occupation in terms of death and injury. Working with
the citizens of North Carolina communities, perhaps we can change these statistics.
