Living Up to the Fireman's Prayer - Safe Ride 4 Kids

Living Up to the Fireman’s Prayer

A note from Safe Ride 4 Kids’ CEO:

In the fall of 1998 when I was a brand new fireman, graduating from fire academy, I asked permission to read the Fireman’s Prayer at our graduation ceremony. I wanted to share it because it encompassed every reason I wanted to be a fireman.

It captured why I got started as a volunteer fireman years earlier. I can honestly say that I had no idea what the salary was until after I was hired. I wasn’t it doing for the pay, the job security or the prestige. I wanted to be of service.

make every arrival a safe arrival™That passion still lives in me today and permeates almost every aspect of my life. I have, over the years, come to understand that prevention is almost always the answer and preferable to trying to put the pieces back together once things come apart.

As CEO of Safe Ride 4 Kids my mission is to help parents keep their kids safe in the car and with our Tummy Shield product which makes the seat belt safer for the pregnant mother and her unborn child, I honor the commitment to “Protect some Life whatever be it’s age”.

When I use my coaching training to help others create loving, fulfilling and passionate relationships I am helping prevent the often devastating ramifications of a relationship that has “Gone up in flames”.

When I consult with another business owner to grow to become the person they need to be to effectively run and grow their business, I am helping them “fireproof” their financial lives and avoid the disaster of a failed business.

Today the Fireman’s Prayer still inspires me to do what I do. I am in service to “my every neighbor” and promise to “Give the best in me”. When you place your trust in us, whether as a customer, client or simply by seeking information from us, know that we are here to serve you with the very same commitment that was captured in “A Fireman’s Prayer” and touched me so deeply by back in 1998.
