As a Senior Fire Officer 1 (SFO1) of our Special Rescue Unit, my nine years of service is one that is fulfilling and rewarding beyond monetary terms. Every time our team is able to rescue people who have been trapped in a fire incident, a good adrenalin rush overcomes the physical stress and anguish that unavoidably come with our work. It also pays that I was once a practicing nurse in a hospital in Bulacan because applying medical first-aid adds up to completing the rescue and care for the fire survivors. A simple “thank you” from them is enough to surge an immeasurable bonus to the emotional and spiritual reward of my profession.
To be on stand-by for 24 hours every other day could have been really taxing to my health. Needless to say, I have to be properly healthy and strong to be able to serve my work unconditionally. Good thing that we are trained periodically on the top from the actual search and rescue routines that we do. They serve as our relentless physical exercise regimens. Right diet is also proven to be a healthy habit to undertake. And speaking of healthy habits, I take MX3 everyday — the healthy mangosteen coffee in the morning and the capsule, twice a day. MX3 is low in sodium; plus it’s cholesterol-and-fat-free.
Being part of the Bureau of Fire Protection Special Rescue Unit makes me feel so thankful that I have always been kept energized from this blessed task of helping people in dire needs. The same blessing that brought me to my dear wife Jeddalyn, who also works in the Fire Bureau.
To me, MX3 is like the special axe that I use to make way to go through fire blazing entryways and make me do my search and rescue work well. A special instrument that I cannot do without everyday. I feel MXtraordinary!
