Reflecting back on our 30 years in publishing Carolina Fire Rescue EMS Journal, it has been absolutely amazing to observe the growth and significance of the fire, rescue and EMS professions. I have witnessed the metamorphosis — evolving into a highly technical, skilled and superbly trained indispensable leaders in our communities. The service they work so hard to provide at great personal risk is absolutely vital to the safety and the ability for the public to live secure in peace knowing they are protected and served by the best.

Things changed with a wake-up call on Sept. 11 as the whole world watched 3000 murders unfold in front of our very eyes. We also watched as 363 brave fire and EMS professionals walked into the abyss and carnage of the World Trade Center.
Many had to be restrained from going back in again and again because that’s what they do. They stay and go in and go again in until the job is done and all lives accounted for.
There are thousands more such incidents on a smaller scale but no less heroic in our Carolinas communities and beyond. They do not waver. They do not flinch. They go in and they go in again. All of their knowledge, training and experience are put to the test. Some make the ultimate sacrifice.
