When the Lord was creating Firefighters, he was into his seventh day of creation when he should have been resting. An angel appeared to him and said, "Your doing a lot of fiddling around on this one." And the Lord said "Have you read the specifications on such a magnificant creature? Firefighters have to be able to go for hours fighting fires or tending to people that the usual every day person would never touch, while putting in the back of their mind the circumstances. They have to be able to move at a second's notice and not think twice of what they are about to do, no matter what danger. They have to be in top physical shape at all times, running on cold,half eaten meals, and they must have four pairs of hands." The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Four pairs of hands...how in the world?" "It's not the hands that are causing me problems, " said the Lord, "it's the three pairs of eyes a Firefighter has to have." That's on the standard number on a model like this? " asked the angel. The Lord nodded. " One pair that sees through the fire and flames and where they and their fellow Firefighters should attack the fire next. Another pair here in the side of the head to see their fellow Firefighters and keep them safe. And another pair of eyes in the front so that they can look for the victims caught in the fire that are in need of their help." "Lord" said the angel, touching his sleeve, " Rest and work on this tomorrow." "I can't, said the Lord, "I already have a model that can carry a 200 pound man down a flight of stairs and to safety from a smoke filled, burning building, and can still keep his family life intact." The angel circled the model of the Firefighter very slowly, "Can it think?" "It sure can," said the Lord. It can tell you the stories of a hundred fires; and can recite procedures in their sleep that are needed to care for a person until they reach the hospital. And all the while they have to keep their wits about themselves. This Firefighter also has phenomenal personal control. They can deal with a scene full of pain and hurt, coaxing a child's mother into letting go of the child so that they can care for the child in need.
