14K Yellow Gold Firefighter Helmet Necklace Charm
Most firemen are volunteers.
That's right. 75% of all firemen are actually volunteers. They choose to run into burning buildings and save lives, not for the fame or fortune but to just help out their community. And they don't even get paid.
Firemen enter buildings with temperatures greater than what you cook meat at in your oven.
A burning building typically reaches 600 degrees on the bottom floor and can get up to typically 1500 degrees in the ceiling! Most people don't cook their food at more then 450 degrees.
Firefighters are expected to get dressed in less then 2 minutes. They need to have everything on in less then 2 minutes! This includes their turnout gear and SCBA (what they use to breathe with in burning buildings) correctly in less than 2 minutes. All of that gear plus the tools to do the job can weigh anywhere between 80 to 120 pounds.
