Hello, I am the Fireman. Needles,
scissors and fire the three things that young children shouldnít play
with: but have no fear, for I keep an eye out for situations just like
this. Itís not only young children who need my either, my services are
available to everyone and Iíll be there quick as a flash!
There are sometimes critical situations
in life when itís comforting to know that you can rely on your own
fireman. We carry out our duties voluntarily and unselfishly, watching
out for the danger of fire and other misfortunes of life.
In our German villages we are proud
that we still get enough young men who volunteer for the fire brigade
and carry out unselfish work year after yearójust like their fathers
and grandfathers before them. In many places the fire brigade are
celebrating their 100th or even 150th anniversary.
Protected by my helmet I am able to put
out some mighty big fires. The next problem, however, is my own enormous
thirst that must be quenched after the fire has been extinguished. I can
open my mouth very wide and this helps me to solve this problem
immediately with a few liters of German beer.
Donít forget then I am ready, willing
and able to help you in any dangerous situation!
