In the fall of 2012, while using a SCBA breathing apparatus, Quigz entered her first burning building. It was at that exact moment Quigz realized this is where she was meant to be. While being calm and clear headed, as per training had instructed, Quigz moved through the building and completed the exercise. While it may be scary to most people to be surrounded by flames or in a life-threatening situation, firefighters are trained to stay calm, and let the training they undergo guide them through to safety. It is one of the biggest aspects of being a hero.
