SUPREME SACRIFICE

 

I HAVE NO AMBITION IN THIS WORLD BUT ONE;
AND THAT IS TO BE A FIREMAN.
THE POSITION MAY, IN THE EYES OF SOME,

APPEAR TO BE A LOWLY ONE;
BUT WE KNOW THE WORK WHICH A FIREMAN HAS TO DO

 BELIEVE HIS IS A NOBLE CALLING.
OUR PROUDEST MOMENT IS TO SAVE...LIVES.


UNDER THE IMPULSE OF SUCH THOUGHTS.
THE NOBILITY OF OCCUPATION

THRILLS US AND STIMULATES US TO DEEDS OF DARING;

 EVEN OF SUPREME SACRIFICE!


By Edward f. Cocker Chief of Dept. FDNY 1899-1911
