I promise concern for others.

A willingness to help all those in need. 
 
I promise courage - courage to face and conquer my fears. 
 
Courage to share and endure the ordeal of those who need me. 
 
I promise strength - strength of heart to bear whatever burdens might be placed upon me. 
 
Strength of body to deliver to safety all those placed within my care.  
 
I promise the wisdom to lead, the compassion to comfort, and the love to serve unselfishly whenever I am called...

When I am called to duty, God, wherever flames may rage,
Give me the strength to save some life whatever be its age. 

Help me embrace a little child before it is too late, or save an
older person from the horror of that fate. 

Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout, and quickly and efficiently to put the fire out. 

I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me, to guard my every neighbor and protect his property.

And if according to my fate I am to lose my life this day,
Please bless with your protecting hand my family this I pray.
