Pride. Honor. Duty. Integrity.
These words are often used to describe the family of firefighters. When you become a firefighter, you gain a whole new family of men and women that share the “fire” within them…the burning desire to make the world a better place by helping others. In a 2013 poll of Anoka County firefighters, 95% were drawn to the profession because they “felt called to use my time & energy for the greater good.”
Firefighters are consistently ranked the most trusted profession in the community. We are looked to as role models due to our professionalism, sacrifice, and simply the nature of the work we do. We set the bar high for people looking to join our ranks.
