From an early age Quigz knew she wanted to do something heroic. Not something that solely mattered to herself, but something that would help others as well. Being a Female firefighter is just the sort of things that really brings an immense amount of pride and personal fulfillment to Quigz. Firefighters have always been heroes in society, and events such as 911 have always been a call for heroes to step forward.
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.
