Firefighter's Symbol - The Maltese
The cross Maltese is a symbol the bravery and danger
that firefighters face every day with no regard for
their own safety. They are the first to enter a burning
building to save a trapped victim, or an entire family.
They are selfless in their endeavors, risking the flaming
infernos and even death to save the lives of others.
The Maltese Cross pendant has become the firefighter's
symbol of courage, honor, and dedication in the United
States. The firefighters live their lives just as the
original Knights of Hospitaller did when they defended
the city of Jerusalem from their enemies.
The Firefighter's Prayer
When I am called to duty, God
Whenever flames may rage
Give me strength to save some life
Whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person
The horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert
And hear the weakest shout
And quickly and efficiently
To put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling and
To give the best of me
To guard my every neighbor and
Protect his property.
And if according to my fate
I answer to death's call,
Please bless with your protecting hand
My family one and all.
