Crossed Trumpets Carry as Many Obligations as They Do Privileges
The obligations and responsibilities of a fire fighter increase with his rank.
Putting on a chief’s badge doesn’t mean putting off responsibilities. Rather it means new duties, new accountabilities.
When you’re a proby’ you long to be an officer. When you’re ‘made’ you aspire to the crossed trumpets—and more and more of ’em.
But those trumpets don’t come easily. They have to be won. It takes blood, toil and sweat, and most important, study. How did the old couplet go?
The heights of great men reached and kept,
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upwards in the night.
For over 80 years FIHE ENGINEERING has been the “study bible” for those fire fighters who aspire to wear the trumpets and who toil upward in the night. It is a safe statement too, that more promotional examination questions arebased upon FIRE ENGINEERING’S editorial content than any other one periodical.
No wonder that FIRE ENGINEERING has shown consistent growth over the years—in readership, editorial and advertising content.
