Hanging with Few Cavaliers! The Professional Firefighters Association of South Florida (PFA South Florida) visited a few cavaliers at Parkway Middle School of Lauderhill.

"Community Risk Reduction" According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Community Risk Reduction (CRR) is defined as “programs, actions, and services used by a community, which prevent or mitigate the loss of life, property, and resources associated with life safety, fire, and other disasters within a community.” The Professional Firefighters Association of South Florida (PFA South Florida) embraces the concept of CRR in a another way. We describe the process as identifying potential hazards that affect our youths and young adults and then we develop strategies to eliminate the threats: illegal drugs, violence, crime, poverty, physical/mental abuse, bullying and unhealthy lifestyle choices. First, we identify youth that are in need of assistance. Secondly, we provide life skills and conduct firefighter orientations. Thirdly, we support other local organizations that provide services and critical resources that helps our younger generations. This message is approved by the Professional Firefighters Association of South Florida (PFA South Florida). *We do not represent nor endorse NFPA.  #cityofmiramar  #firesafety  #mentors  #firefighterorientation  #publiceducation  #communityservice  #pfasouthflorida  #trailblazers  #firepioneers  #trailblazersoffireservice  #professionalfirefighters  #plantingseedsRus  #developingfuturefirefighters  #ruggedglory  #ansinfoundation  #memorialhealthcare  #browardhealth  #charliplawgroup  #kaufmanlynn  #townofpembrokepark

"A Journey to Success" When I was younger my go to for career day was always to dress up as a police officer. I used to get so excited in my well pressed uniform and pretending that I was preparing myself to protect the city. It has always been a dream of mine to save lives and protect my country. However, one day my mother and I were browsing through different career fields and we came across the EMS profession. I conducted so much research on it that day as my passion for EMS grew fonder. I wanted to know what was the first step to achieve this rewarding career and that’s when I discovered PFA South Florida. They have been instrumental with my journey by educating, motivating and inspiring me. Also, they jumpstarted my career by helping me land a job at an ambulance company. Today I stand proud as a paramedic and everyday I wake up feeling ecstatic that I chose the right path. However, it doesn’t stop here because I look forward to becoming part of a leading fire-rescue department one day. I desire to be that superhero who everyone could look up to while helping others during their most desperate times of need. Thanks PFA South Florida. You guys are a blessing!  #firesafety  #mentors  #firefighterorientation  #publiceducation  #communityservice  #pfasouthflorida  #trailblazers  #firepioneers  #trailblazersoffireservice  #professionalfirefighters  #plantingseedsRus  #developingfuturefirefighters  #ruggedglory  #ansinfoundation  #memorialhealthcare  #browardhealth  #cityofmiramar  #charliplawgroup  #kaufmanlynn  #townofpembrokepark  #cityofpompanobeach  #pompanobeachhousingauthority

"Overtime" Overtime for us has a totally different meaning. It is the extra time that we have been given on earth and the work that is required of us. Anyone who knows our stories, understands that we could've been deceased on several occasions when we were youngsters. You may share similar experiences. It is only because of God's grace why we are still alive as many of us have been saved for a purpose. The mission is bigger than us and that is why we are intentional when it comes to our youth and young adults. We engage them with Life Skills and career opportunities such as the Fire Service. However, we also discuss various professions that only require certifications as opposed to a college degree. We understand that not all of our children will obtain a college scholarship, have the finances to pay for tuition or simply do not desire to attend a higher education institution. Its simple - we invest in our children and young adults because they are our future. We serve our communities because we are those same children. We understand the challenges that they face on a daily basis and are not quick to judge them. Prayer and compassion are needed but actions are also required. We remain unwavering and relentless against all destructive forces towards our youth. This is what we have been called to do and we will continue to answer the call!

"Honoring Trailblazers of the Fire Service" There are many people who perform great deeds on a daily basis and do not seek anything in return. They have gone above and beyond to help countless numbers of people for many years. They transform the lives of strangers, students, colleagues and families for better. Some of these same individuals have made sacrifices and put their own careers at risk by standing up for what is right. When faced with adversity, many of them persevered and remained steadfast with good character and integrity. They have taught us to keep our heads high, stay the course and never give up. All of us have needed some help along the way and without these types of courageous and motivational leaders we wouldn't be where we are today. A simple "thank you" has always been good enough for them. However, on Saturday, May 4th we honored these eight Trailblazers of the Fire Service who have paved the way for so many of us. Join us next year for another amazing event!  #cityofmiramar  #firesafety  #mentors  #firefighterorientation  #publiceducation  #communityservice  #pfasouthflorida  #trailblazers  #firepioneers  #trailblazersoffireservice  #professionalfirefighters  #plantingseedsRus  #developingfuturefirefighter  #ruggedglory  #ansinfoundation  #memorialhealthcare  #kaufmanlynn  #townofpembrokepark  #cityofpompanobeach  #miramarfirerescue  #seminolehardrock  #goodfriendcounseling  #bsofirerescue  #browardhealth  #planetprinter  #echo1studio  #refreshlive  #thehomelady

"Mock Interview" The Professional Firefighters Association of South Florida (PFA South Florida) provides mock interviews for our affiliates. Panel interviews are a "make it or break it" for so many candidates. In many cases, the "buck stops" there because the interviewee is lacking one or a few items that are necessary to pass this part of the hiring process. In a nutshell, fire-rescue departments want to know that they are selecting the best person for the next 25 years. Why do you want to become a firefighter? What makes you the best candidate? Do you prefer ice coffee with caramel or hot coffee with cream and sugar?  #mockinterview  #firesafety  #mentors  #firefighterorientation  #publiceducation  #communityservice  #pfasouthflorida  #trailblazers  #firepioneers  #trailblazersoffireservice  #professionalfirefighters  #plantingseedsRus  #developingfuturefirefighters  #ruggedglory  #browardcollege  #ansinfoundation  #americanambulance  #memorialhealthcare  #kaufmanlynn  #townofpembrokepark  #cityofpompanobeach  #vitashealthcare  #miramarfirerescue  #seminolehardrock  #goodfriendcounseling  #jlfurniture  #dunkindonuts  #DD

"PFA South Florida Movie, Dinner & Game Night" The Professional Firefighters Association of South Florida (PFA South Florida) has brought the year to a close with some fun and games. Some people may have been wondering if we find time to enjoy ourselves and the answer is "yes". The movie, Creed II revealed how we must overcome personal conflicts and negative influences in order to achieve the goals and objectives set for our lives. The plot reminded us of the life skills that we teach to our local youths and young adults. We encourage them to seek out, find and fulfill their purpose. We were taught by our spiritual father that, "Adversity really does not matter". That means to make no excuse and do not let anyone or anything discourage you from pursuing your purpose. Accept responsibilty for your actions and don't blame others. Turn the obstacles, shortfalls, challenges and failures into lessons learned and use them for motivation. Seek help, when necessary, as we all need some along the way. Remain steadfast and unwavering in this journey called life. Never give up! Amen, Amen & Amen!  #firesafety  #mentors  #firefighterorientation  #publiceducation  #communityservice  #pfasouthflorida  #trailblazers  #firepioneers  #trailblazersoffireservice  #professionalfirefighters  #plantingseedsRus  #developingfuturefirefighters  #browardcollege  #ansinfoundation  #americanambulance  #memorialhealthcare  #kaufmanlynn  #townofpembrokepark  #cityofpompanobeach  #vitashealthcare  #miramarfirerescue  #seminolehardrock  #goodfriendcounseling
