If you want to know, just ask. My biggest thrill is helping others ... next would be making them laugh or smile!

Top Issues Facing Responders:

thanks FW the new gig is at sikorsky helicopters. bad part of the new gig is that i can only respond to ems and structural related calls as a FF/EMT, any aircraft calls(which is 90% of our calls) i can only act as an emt but i am heading to ARFF school this spring sometime.....
Oh...the scope. LOL! First, thank you so much for asking!! It turns out I had a "significantly large ulcer" and "burning at the base of my esophogus, both of which is now scar tissue".
