Those who nourish the dream of being a fire fighter have a chance to be one for a day through a contest set up by the Cuerpo de Bomberos. The essay contest is in commemoration of the agency’s 148th anniversary.
Those who seek to enter can respond to the question of why they want to be a fire fighter on the agency’s Facebook page.
Those without Facebook access can send their response to a Bombero email address.
The winner will be chosen through a raffle, and he or she will be able to bring two friends to participate in trips to various fire stations and engaging in the daily work of a fire fighter. If there is an emergency, the winner and friends will participate, said the agency. Entries will be accepted until July 12, said the Bomberos.
