A Fireman's Night Before Christmas

I'm at the station tonight, so lets keep it quiet.  Lets wait til Jan 7th to start up a riot. 

To the men and women all across Texas and beyond, The boys and I at the station wish you all a very Merry Christmas.  God Bless, be safe, and Hook em!


Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the land,
Not a creature was stirring
Not even Command.

The gear was all hung
In the stations with care
So if help were needed
We'd soon all be there.

The firefighters were nestled
All snug in their beds,
While visions of new trucks
Danced through their heads.

The training was finished
All action was stopped,
In hopes that at Christmas
No calls would be dropped.

When over the pagers
There rose such a clatter
We all sprang to our feet
To see what was the matter.

A fire was burning
No time to be slow
And though it was Christmas
We all had to go

With sirens a'blaring
Our energies high,
We sped in the trucks
Toward the glow in the sky.

On engine, on rescue,
On ladder, on tower,
Now hook to the hydrants
And show it our power

We'll sector the fire
By roof and by wall,
Now dash away, dash
Dash away all.

So up to the top
The roof sector flew,
With axes and pike poles
and smoke blowers, too.

Interior was working
In front and behind,
And all of a sudden
Reported a find.

He was dressed all in red
From his head to his foot
His clothes were all soiled
With ashes and soot.

But his eyes had a twinkle
It wasn't a trick,
Who else could it be?
It must be Saint Nick!

He said thanks for the rescue
For hearing my call,
We were close to not having
A Christmas at all.

I wish I could stay
'Till you end this command,
But I've much work to do
All over the land.

The gifts that I'll leave
For each one of you
Are nothing compared
To the giving you do.

So thanks one last time
For the service you give,
For keeping us safe
Wherever we live.

My Holiday wish
As you keep up the fight,
Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good night!
