Moving On

The Southport Volunteer Fire Department has a long tradition of helping young men and women to build character and to care for others. We provide an opportunity to learn how to function as part of a team and teach confidence under pressure. This tradition continues with many of our members who have moved on to various professions to serve others.

Moving On
I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a firefighter. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the firefighter has to do believe that it is a noble calling. There is an adage which says that, 'Nothng can be destroyed except by fire.' We strive to preserve from destruction the wealth of the world which is the product of the industry of men, necessary for the comfort of both the rich and poor. We are defenders from fires of the art which has beautified the world, the product of thegenius of men and the means of refinement of mankind. But, above all; our proudest endeavor is to save lives of men - the work of God Himself. Under the impulse of such thoughts, the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even at the supreme sacrifice. Such considerations may not strike the average mind, but they are sufficient to fill to the limit our ambition in life and to make us serve the general purpose of human society.
Chief Edward F. Croker, FDNY
ca. 1910
