Firefighters have equipment and are trained for getting people out of burning buildings, but without the proper equipment you may become another victim.
Firefighters who actively extinguish the fires must be capable of carrying all of the protective gear (45 pounds or more) and manipulating the fire hose, both of which can be quite heavy. But Department members can also contribute in other ways such as fire prevention, traffic control or records.
