Real Colonial Park Members Telling It Like It Is.

Every day, members of Colonial Park put their lives on the line. From emergency calls to first responder duties, they are prepared for fires, accidents, and a host of unexpected challenges that are just a part of the job. These dedicated professionals handle hazardous materials, respond to alarms for smoke and CO2 gas, and confront two dozen or more other routine surprises with courage, skill, and unwavering determination.

No one can speak to the challenges like those who have faced them. Their experiences offer a unique perspective that provides a deeper understanding of the obstacles to be overcome. In fact, it’s often those very challenges that enable us to grow and learn, ultimately leading to greater success.
