“Mixed emotion” that was Wendell Ramos describes his first day as a volunteer firefighter.
According to the report of DZBB, the Kapuso actor is one of the respondents in a fire that occurred in Valenzuela City on June 2.
Wendell Ramos finished her training in the non-government organization “Ang Bumbero ng Pilipinas (ABP) on Saturday. The Kapuso actor said that he felt mixed emotion when he personally saw the fire as one of the respondent’s volunteer firefighter.
But one thing that came to his mind during that time, that he made the right decision to become a firefighter.
In his Instagram account, the Kapuso actor shared several photos of his first duty as a volunteer firefighter. Wendell wrote on his caption,
“Felt sorry for the people and the community we responded today. First day of duty as a volunteer firefighter. Mixed emotions… But I am thankful for the guidance of my fellow #ABPangbumberongpilipinas #PHS Fireout!”
In his interview with 24 Oras, Wendell shared that when he was still a child, he dreamed to be a public servant, such as police and military. This is also the way that he thinks to give help to the public, especially during the pand3mic.
“To be honest, nung panahon nung (ECQ) ng pandemic, di ako nakalabas. Sabi ko sa wife ko, meron akong ipon, meron akong tabi, hindi ko lahat maibigay. Ano pa ang pwede kong maibigay to give back, na kahit papaano nung mga times ng pandemic, nakakain ako nang maayos.”
“Hindi ako perfect, pero I think tama yung ginagawa ko sa buhay ko. Ang privilege na pagiging volunteer ay nagte-“thank you” ang tao sa’yo at nakatulong ka sa kanila.”
Wendell also said that his training is still ongoing as a member of ABP which includes rescuing the people and other important things that firefighter usually does.
