Firefighter Matt is a hero because he was brave enough saving people in car crashes. He is also a hero because he tells people how to keep safe from fires and accidents. Firefighter Matt decided to be a firefighter because his friend told him that this is a good job where he could really help and save people. His messages to us are that we can learn if we practise, also he told us that we can be a good reader if we read heaps of books. I think firefighter Matt is a hero because he has compassion, courage, peacefulness and LOVE.
