The question has come up, are you a Professional Firefighter or are you a Volunteer Firefighter?
That term has been around for some time now. Professional does not necessarily mean that you are getting paid for what it is that you do. In the fire service there are paid fireman and volunteer fireman. I consider myself to be a professional fireman, even though I am a Volunteer. Being a Professional is all about how you conduct yourself. I know a lot of Paid Fireman who are very Professional, and I know some that are not. And then on the other side of the scale you will have both in the Volunteer Service. I am proud to say that of all the people that I have met in the Volunteer side of things, the large majority of them are very professional.
Being a professional really says a lot about who you are. If you are dedicated to what you do, and you enjoy doing it then you will be a professional at it.
You don’t have to be the best at everything. You don’t have to be the know it all. But what you do know and are able to do,and if you do it with dedication and pride, then you can consider your self a professional.
There was a recent article in FireHouse Magazine that I read that prompted me to right this.
