Islip Fire Department
 

When I'm called to duty, God,
wherever flames may rage.

Give me strength to save a life
whatever be its age.

Help me to embrace a little child
before it is too late

Or save an older person from
the horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert
to hear the weakest shout

And quickly and efficiently
to put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling and
to give the best in me.

To guard my every neighbor
and protect their property.

And if according to Your will
I have to lose my life,

Please bless with Your protecting hand
my children and my wife.
