I once heard a story about a fire that broke out in a building in a small town. The town’s fire department was called to put the fire out, but it proved to be more than they could handle. So, someone suggested that a rural volunteer fire department be called in. The town’s fire chief doubted volunteer firemen could help. But, he made the call anyway. Well, a few minutes later a rag-tag group of volunteer firefighters arrived at the fire in a dilapidated old fire truck. To the amazement of everyone, they drove straight into the middle of the flaming building, jumped off the old fire truck and frantically began spraying water in all directions. Soon they had snuffed out the center of the fire, breaking the blaze into two easily controllable parts, which the town’s firefighters were easily able to put out. The owner of the building was so impressed with the volunteer firefighter’s bravery, he gave them a check for $1000.
