CCFD ELFF, Photography, Criminal Justice
I am the Clark County FD (CCFD) photographer and Volunteer Firefighter with CCFD Rural Division.
To assist in the community as a volunteer firefighter and to spread the knowledge of the fire service (especially for the volunteer departments) through my photography.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
In-explainable...it's in the blood, family tradition, sense of helping the community...you pick.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Besides current economic conditions and budget cuts. The community/society lack of education/knowledge of the fire service and it's volunteers not realizing that volunteers received training as the "regular firefighter*" do in some communities and not receiving the respect due to them.
