Firemen have been under public scrutiny for doing certain things wrong. These things would never have been publicized had they been done by common citizens. Unfair? Maybe. But that’s a burden a role model must bear. Like it or not, firemen, as well as police & emergency responders, are held in high esteem by many. Consequentially, they must act to a higher standard even when not on shift. Failure to do so actually diminishes the esteem in which firemen, police or emergency responders are held.

In this video, Chief Wylie gives us his perspective about living up to the expectations your community demands.

Let us know what you think about stricter public scrutiny in the comments »
