At BumperOnly, we’re always impressed with the men and women who bravely put their lives at risk to help others. Without them, life would not be the same, and with this blog, we want to take a moment to be grateful for the Americans who are out there facing terrifying fires over and over to save the lives of their fellow citizens. Whether you are one of those people or maybe are close to someone who is a firefighter, or even if you just find this field fascinating but have no connection to it, we hope that it will inspire others to remember to value the hard work that these people do every day.
Elizabeth Mann, a Yorkshire Volunteer Fire Department, is one of those heroes who wanted to share her story. She grew up immersed in the fire service as both her father and grandfather had been working in the fire service for more than 30 years. They were the ones to inspire her to get started in this field of work but initially, she resisted her love for this career and postponed joining for a few years. Nevertheless, already from a young age, she was out there on fire calls with her dad, who at the time was Chief of the Fire Department.
Over the years, she continued to follow her dad as he responded to numerous fire calls around the city. She occupied her time at a local community college but nothing excited her more than responding to those calls and after some indecision, she finally made the jump to join the fire department. Six years later, she has followed the same path as her grandfather and has been a third-generation EMT for 5 and a half years now.
“ I am so happy that I chose this path for my life. I love volunteering for my community day in and day out. I hope my grandpa is looking down on me and is proud that I’m following the family tradition. ” says Elizabeth, who has now become the President of her department.
BumperOnly is a proud supporter of firefighters who every day risk their lives to save others across the United States. Over the past years, we have served hundreds of brave firefighters by keeping their trucks safe with our bumpers and plan to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
We’re committed to showing our appreciation for their hard work and to do so, we’re offering an exclusive discount that they can use on any orders. If you’re a firefighter yourself, please do get in touch with our team as we’d love to help you add some extra protection to your vehicle at the best price possible. This is the least we can do to support our American heroes and if you need any advice on the best bumper to buy for your truck, we can help with that too either via live chat or via call on 281-404-2124.
