Why I Joined Fire/EMS
It took me six years to really find the words to explain why I am a firefighter. In one call I found the emotions more then the words to explain it. I responded to someone in need of help after an MVI, I helped give the best medical care possible and got the patient to the hospital with their condition improving. I came home with the feeling of pride in knowing that I did it all because I enjoy helping people in this way. All of these moments and feelings from this one call summarized why I am a firefighter.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The excitement of going on calls and helping people.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Politics, reliability issues, and in BC separate dispatches for different emergency agencies; there is always miscommunication or information missing when information is passed from one agency to another.

I was at an EMS conference this weekend that promoted multi-agency training during different types of emergencis but focused more on mass-casualty incidents and the challenges of limited resources in rural areas. This was a great first step in training and communicating between multi-agencies and will hopefully continue and grow.

What do other fire departments do for multi-agency training especially in rural areas?

This is something that my fire department has to deal with every year and we do have a plan for response to the festival but I am curious how other people would respond to it.

Shambhala Music Festival is about 10 minutes outside of the Village of Salmo but response can be up to a half an hour depending on traffic. The route is paved highway up to the turn off to the music festival then it is a dirt road for about 5 km (about 3 miles), about half of the road is only single…

Send me your email address and I'll send a photo of the two patches I mentioned in my previous comment.

I collect all three - police, fire and ambulance. They don't have to be new...as long as they are in decent shape.
