Fire fighters are the true heroes of America. Every day they put their lives on the line to make our communities as safe as possible. Who among us can imagine the bravery it must take to rush into a burning building, battling against the most destructive force nature has to offer? Yet most of us don't know what goes on behind the scenes in the life of a fireman. How are they trained? How do they keep us safe when they are not fighting fires? It's not all about rescuing cats from the tops of trees! In order to celebrate the bravery and commitment of America's fire fighters, we have collected some of the best vintage clips of fire fighters demonstration films ever assembled! These films were all shot more than 50 years ago and were used by actual fire companies to train their men and show the public the importance of fire fighters in protecting the lives of Americans!
