70% of the firefighters in the country are volunteers. They are just like you, except sometimes in the middle of the night, when you’re sleeping, they are responding to a house fire, a cardiac arrest or a horrific car crash.
They might not talk about it a lot at work the next day, but being a volunteer firefighter changes you.
The mission of Responding! is to share their stories and insights.
These are firefighters explaining — in their own words — why they do what they do and how it changes how they see the world.
Enjoy the stories. See the world through our eyes. See if you are changed.

I do, how would I be? What would I do?”
