"He showed the grit of a fireman!"  Basically in this quote, when you talk about a fireman, and the grit of a fireman, I think most people will come up with words like bravery, heroics, courage, moral fiber, and toughness.  But when is this grit really tested?  In the case of a fireman, you would probably have to look at a particular incident that is really scary. One that would demand the firefighter to enter a burning building or falling structure to rescue a person, while braving fire, and other falling debris.  But personally, although i think this is great, I feel this is them just doing their job.  They are supposed to do this and be heroic and pull people out.  The times I think you see REAL grit, is in everyday life stuff.  Someone that is fighting non-stop to keep food on the table, clothes on their kids, keep the doors of the business open, to get the job, whatever.  Ever see the movie "The Pursuit of Happiness" with Will Smith? It's about a father that is trying to make it so that he can support his young son and himself.  There are struggles, massive struggles.  He is kicked out of his house, he is trying to keep his job, he is trying to get food, he and his son have to sleep in bus stations, or bathrooms, etc.  But he isn't stopping.  He simply REFUSES to stop.  THAT is grit.  That is toughness, bravery, fortitude, and character.  The time when you get to prove your grit is when your world gets turned upside down.  How will you show when your test turns up? :)
