Amy replied to Chance Westfall's discussion For those that have and use a radio strap...
"Chance, I wear mine under my coat. My coat is Firedex, zip, no snaps. Getting the mic up and out is sometimes one of the most frustrating things. I take my mic, and clip it to my collar, by my left ear and then zip up. It doesn't always stay…"

Amy replied to FF Nick's discussion Whats your preference on Pump Panel location?
"We have one of each: Our tanker is a side mount, our engine a top mount and our new mini attack is a rear mount. They all have pros and cons. I happen to like the side mount most, mostly b/c getting up into the top mount with my damn short legs is a…"

Amy replied to Chance Westfall's discussion For those that have and use a radio strap...
"Our department doesn't use straps, but I got one about a year ago. I'll never go back. I love it. It's convenient, and imo safer. My radio never stayed in the pocket, mic was always flopping around and falling off my coat. Took a bit…"

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Tired of my crappy job, I responded to an ad for the sheriff's department and was hired as a deputy. We have 'part time" certification here, requiring a week at the police academy. When I was held back from advancement and desired training, I applied for a full time spot at a local PD, went to the Full Time Basic Academy, 16 weeks of hell, and graduated top of my class, the 93rd. I loved my job, even enjoyed the academy. A combination of politics and a particularly gruesome case had me taking a break. Bored and wanting to still use my skills, I joined our local FD, where my husband is 1st LT. Am I in it for the rush? Sure. But it's really the satisfaction of DOING, helping, being a part of something bigger than yourself, and the closeness of a house family. We have 3 generations in some of the families! And our daughter just joined the junior division. I'm a proud mama. ( She is also darn good with a fire arm!)
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I am a doer. I like to be surrounded by like minded people...people who run towards the problem and not away from it.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Training: there is never enough of it.
Politics: there is no room for it.
Equipment: need more, need newer, and need trained ppl to run it. We have a shortage of VFF's here.
