What do firemen do when there isn’t a fire? They are generally thought to sit around doing nothing, and although I know that isn’t the case I still went through the thought process of ‘What’s the point of having firemen on call?’
Before you get up on all those high horses I do know the reason, really I do. And I appreciate it, a lot.
I just like to think, extrapolate and cogitate for the fun of it.
I got to thinking ‘’What if ... there were no firemen, no ambulance crew, no doctors, no emergency services on standby – ever. What if ... we went back to the olden days when these were just secondary jobs in communities? Would we survive well?’
Risk assessment takes place in the work place, school, office and street every day and we have things in place ... just in case.
I mean, my car has air bags and reinforced doors just in case I am involved in another road traffic accident.
They are there because someone asked ‘What if ...?’ I forget about them most of the time, however, I’m glad they are there.
I guess, it’s a bit like God. For me, I don’t always have a constant connection to Him, but I do regard Him as more than an Emergency Service, to me God is there for much more than ‘What if’s’ God is in my life because ... without this comfort and belief in more then I think I would be nervously asking ‘What if... ?’ most of the day!
