North Texas Firefighters Put Out Fires Across the Country
This last year’s health crisis has highlighted the courage and heroism of our first responders. But, as our focus has been primarily on doctors, nurses, and paramedics, we can’t forget the heroes that help us when our lives are in a very different kind of danger.
The firefighters of Texas have shown themselves to be genuine heroes. Take this recent example reported by Star Local Media.
As North Texas firefighters returned home from a stint helping with wildfires in California, they came upon a fire that had resulted from a traffic accident.
A semi-truck filled with lettuce had collided with what had either been a mobile home or a travel trailer. The trailer had been destroyed and a fire had started burning the semi and the surrounding grass.
Local authorities told the Texas firefighters that they’d welcome some help. they jumped into action, suiting up and dividing their effort between putting out the truck and controlling the grassfire, which could have easily gotten out of control.
And where did this event happen? In New Mexico. Meaning our local Texas heroes has been helping out all across the country these days.
Of course, they didn’t have to help. No one told them to do it. They volunteered.
Because that’s what heroes do.
A collision on the highway can easily cause fires that grow out of control. When traffic gets backed up as a result of the accident, a grassfire can cost many lives and property damage.
How glad we are that our North Texas first responders show such courage and volunteerism!
