If Joanne Craig (Incendiary bombast, Letters, Sept. 20) thinks firefighters are coddled, she needs to walk in their shoes for just one busy day.

They have to deal with pressurized hoses, dead people from accidents and fires, performing CPR, carrying people and various heavy-duty situations.

I hope she never has the need for a firefighter to come to her house. I did, and thanks to their fast response time, CPR, carrying me and putting me on a stretcher and in an ambulance, I am alive today.
