"Firefighters volunteer their time to promote good within the community."
WHAT THEY SAY
Firefighter Stanley Lyons Jr.
I’m a firefighter because I grew up around the fire service. I loved the way my dad was able to go out and give back to his community, and he would always tell me how rewarding the job was. What motivates me to be a firefighter is that I love people and the guys that I do this job with every day. Giving back to the community is a great feeling.
I originally became a volunteer firefighter at Bayou Cane in 2007. My brother was volunteering before me and got me interested. I was born and raised in Houma and I wanted to be able to give back to the community I grew up in.
I’ve always wanted a job to help people and be proud of. After a few other jobs that didn’t fill the void that I didn’t know I was missing, I finally found my calling. Being there for people in need is truly satisfying.
