You take your responsibility seriously and probably lose more than a little sleep worrying about your people and your responsibility to them.   

Your reputation and the lives of your team members are on the line every single hour of every single day.  Ongoing training is absolutely critical as reported by Fire Fighter Nation

They point out that when candidates graduate from the academy they have only the basic skills necessary to be an effective firefighter.  They need both hands-on training and ongoing course work to develop and maintain the proper techniques to keep themselves safe and effective.

Most of the early training firefighters receive is focused on fire control yet according to the article, "more than half (55 percent) of all 911 calls responded to by the American fire service involve a medical emergency; less than 10 percent involve actual fire

That is why the programs offered by Action Training Systems include a heavy focus on responding to and handling medical emergencies.
