Yes. There are a lot of dangers in this profesion.
Firefighting is very dangerous because of all the different varriables you have. Like your air supply and the material of the building.
theres various ways to become a firefighter. you can always volunteer which make up more 80% percent of the united States fire protection or you can go career. To go career yo…u have to go through some kind of fire academy. you can go to a fire academy affiliated with a college or go through a fire academy affiliated with a department. for example..if you go to a fire academy affiliated with a department for instance HFD (Houston Fire Department) you go through the academy and then they put you on a probationary period. (remember you are still getting paid through all of this)..and basically if you pass through their academy you are a paid firefighter through them and remember you also have to have your EMT-B to be paid.
This is a very difficult question to answer. Firefighting is a very dangerous job. As engineers come up with new and lighter construction methods, the job of firefighting is b…ecoming more and more dangerous. There are a long list of dangers on the fireground. The list is too long to list here. There are many obvious answers to this question from personal injury to death.. The rewards are firefighting all depend on why you joined the fire service. If you joined to help people, it can be a very rewarding occupation. If you joined for the excitement it also can be a very rewarding occupation. However, many times you are forced to endure long periods of boredom between calls. You may not get a fire everyday, every week, or even every month. Depending on the department and call volume, you may not fight many fires but you will do an abundant amount of emergency medical calls.. Soon after joining, you will quickly realize if you have what it takes to be a firefighter, physically and emotionally.
Contact your local fire departments and ask about their hiring requirements and procedures. Some colleges offer courses that teach people how to fight fires and operate the eq…uipment.

Bad weather alone was enough trouble, sometimes it would be too foggy for the boats to travel or too cold to leave camp. Also, rain would cause the instruments to rust so Lewi…s had to constantly check them and oil them down again. Along the river were mass amounts of mosquitoes which Lewis said "gathered around my face so much so I could not see." Choppy waters would make boat travel difficult and while they made it, there was the constant fear of drowning or the boat capsizing. Hostile natives, disease (men drank from the rivers, and there was a shortage of fruit and vegetables), wild animals, mutiny from members of the expedition, and always the constant danger of falling into one of the rivers, breaking a leg, etc. Bad water would cause the men to suffer from terrible boils on their skin; Lewis would suffer from a bad case of the flu one winter and Clark suffered from a "rheumatism of the neck" which caused him pain for several days. For Clark, Lewis applied a "hot stone wrapped in flannel" to help ease his pain. At one point Lewis was accidentally shot in the left thigh by a near-blind member of the expedition, but managed to make it back safely. During the winter, the men suffered from frostbite, luckily leading to no necessary amputations, but the cold temperatures prevented them from leaving their forts to hunt. Also, several times the men had to keep constant guard on their supplies and natives would follow them and try to steal their horses.
Many times you can, although the fire is usually sealed off by police officers to prevent injuries to the public. Some jurisdictions have outlawed portable police and fire rad…io scanners in private vehicles, so you cannot "cruise" for fires. This is a public safety issue when too many unnecessary people attempt to converge while emergency apparatus is also on the way. It is generally not a good idea to approach a burning fire closely without any equipment or experience. Even with the proper training and equipment its not easy to stay safe in the vicinity of fire. On the other hand, many people enjoy observing the excitement of fire, rescue and extinguishing it. As long as you are not in the way or putting anyone in danger, it may be acceptable to attend from a respectable distance.
Is it dangerous to pull people out of burning buildings? [/sarcasm]
Current or AMPS are what the appliance draws or load of the appliance. So, if you have a say 10,000 amps going thru a cable rated for say 1,000 amps , guess what ,the cable ov…er heats and either will melt or at least catch fire.
because they are the first responders
Because you have a 50-50 chance that you might not come back alive from a fire accident
Pstd which is a disorder, and sometimes when they can't save someone they will be sad thinking to theirselves they are useless
