Our fanart Simpsons Fireman Skinner cursor features the Springfield Volunteer Fire Department alter-ego of Seymour Skinner, also known as Walter Seymour Skinner, but born as Armin Tamzarian. He is the principal of Springfield Elementary School and a stereotypical educational bureaucrat. That happened in the Crook and Ladder episode, in which Homer, Moe, Apu, and Principal Skinner become volunteer firefighters. Like every person, they won't do it for free. But just because they're not getting paid doesn't mean they can't find a way to receive compensation.
