The first time I was at the scene of a firefight, I didn’t know what the hell was going on, I just knew it was a disaster.
The fire fighting equipment that I was wearing had just been delivered, but it was too late for my team to take it off.
I remember asking the team member to bring my helmet back, because I was still in the helmet and couldn’t move it.
We were going to get my helmet for our team.
It had to be put back on, so I said, ‘Okay, I’m not going to bring it back, but I’m going to take a look at the fire fighting station’.
He said, “No, no, no”.
He told me, “The helmet was worth more than the fire fighters equipment”.
Then he told me that the fire team’s equipment is much better.
I asked him, “Why?”
He said “Because the fire brigade’s equipment was not up to scratch”.
I said I had no idea.
What do you do with a fire fighter?
He said to me, ‘You’ll need the equipment, the firefighting team, and the equipment of the firefighters.
The equipment is not worth that much’.
And that was it.
I didn´t see a thing about firefighting in the media.
Then I heard about a fire in which a group of children were in the playground.
The children were playing in a small field.
One of them fell on the ground.
The ground was wet, and when he went to pick up his shoes, the wet ground washed him and the children.
The police, who were on the way, saw him and came and took him away.
But the children were crying and screaming in the field.
They weren´t able to get to the fire.
They had to go back to their playground.
It was just too horrible.
The kids were crying because of the fire and because they didn´ t know what to do. They didn´tt know if they could get away from the fire or not.
So, I decided to do something about it.
In December, a group called the Fire Fighters Association came to visit us.
We had the fire in the forest, and we decided to call the firefighters, and they came and helped us out.
We took the fire out.
It took about a week for the forest to be cleared.
And then, when the forest was cleared, the firefighters came in.
They helped us to put out the fire, and then they put us out of the forest.
And they were so kind.
When I was going to the village to help them with the forest clearance, they came to me and said, “”We are going to save you.
“I was so happy, and I told them, “We will save you, we will save the forest.
“They did it.
And now, all of a sudden, I´m an old man.
And I´ve got to get back to my children.
It´s a tragedy, a tragedy.
I have to go to work.
