Firefighters do five main things. They put out fires, rescue people, move emergency patients, manage people’s safety, and eliminate dangers. To take on these responsibilities, they go through professional training. The training allows them to respond quickly to fires and other disasters.
To celebrate the efforts of firefighters, the government designated Nov. 9 as Firefighters’ Day. The government chose Nov. 9 for its similarity to the emergency number, “119.” It is a day for learning about firefighters and what to do in a fire.
