Years With Department/Agency
My Training:
I've been to fire school and had my Hazmat training I plan on getting my EMT and possibly joining our dive team as soon as possible.I'm certified in CPR/First Aid and I'm now a First Responder.
About Me:
Basically I work a minimum wage job and work for the Kermit Volunteer Fire Department when I'm not working.I enjoy helping people and helping my community.Call me crazy but I've always wanted to rush into a burning building and save a lady in distress and possibly fall in but I'll save anyone who may need it though.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I wanted to do something to help my community and also to have something to do in my free time.I think its fun and challenging sometimes.I kind of like the adrenaline I guess.I'm always beside my trusty scanner waiting for the tones to drop.I'm usually hard to wake up but every time my scanner goes off no matter what time in the morning it may be I always hear it and jump outta bed and take off.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I pretty much covered that in the above paragraph.I wanted to do something productive in my spare time.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Well having a fast response time is very important.Its also good to make sure you have everything you need such as neck braces,backboards,and make sure the trucks are full of water.A few months ago someone from another dept forgot to fill their truck up with water and went on a house fire like that.Needless to say they got in trouble.

Playing Music on Handhelds

Posted on December 8, 2010 at 10:53pm 2 Comments

I don't know about everyone else but I think that its stupid when people key up their mics for he heck of it or they'll play music on their radios.That line is supposed to be for emergencies only.Like a few weeks ago we were getting toned out but I couldn't hear everything Mecca(Dispatch) was saying because someone started keying their mic up and it was over riding our tones.What does everyone else think about the subject?
