Why I Joined Fire/EMS
To serve others and so police officers could have role models! Lol! I love people and what better way to show it than to serve them in their time of need! We have many roles as a firefighter such as Hazmat response, medical, rescue, fire suppression, and even public relations, all of which gives us an opportunity to help others and make new friends!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I can serve others in need!
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Other drivers on the road not yielding when we are responding to an emergency.
Volunteer departments not having the proper equipment and training.
Need a commission to regulate volunteer departments to ensure proper training and equipment.
