A mother’s wise words…

My mom, having grown up in the South, used to say, “You better check yourself at the door…!”

Honesty, fairness, kindness, helpful, selfless, trustworthy, empathetic, dependable, responsible, lawful, humble, sincere, hard working, accountable, non judgmental, moral, ethical and tolerant.

A potential firefighter candidate “at the door” with these personal characteristics has much to offer to a potential employer as well the community they want to serve.

A mom’s wise council in a simple statement.

“Have you checked yourself at the door?”
