rehab

Hello, not sure if this is where this goes but.... I was curious about how many departments out there have a dedicated rehab team. Our department has a rehab team of 16, we have two units..a air support truck that has a cascade system. This unit also carries a 12 x 20 inflatable rehab tent from landmark creations...misters...heaters...extra generators, Gatorade, SCBA bottles, chairs and medical supplies. Our second unit is a " bus" that we can bring in victims and firefighters. This is is…See More

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
A long time ago my home burnt to the ground. Unfortunately there was a very small volunteer fire department in my area and they were fighting another fire 10 miles away. We succeeded in getting our daughters out of the house but our oldest daughter was not breathing. We had several smoke detectors but not one went off. We had adopted an arson dog about 8 months prior and she saved our lives. Unfortunately she died a couple of days later. A couple of firefighters heard our call and came to our aid. They helped us to get out daughter breathing again. They attempted to save the house but we told them to let it go our
daughter was more important. After extinguishing the other fire the guys and girls spent another 3-4 hours salvaging what they could from what was left of our home. They were exhausted and hungry but they stayed with us even though their job was done. We decided then that given the opportunity we would "pay it forward " and return what was given to us.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
i love helping people especially those in need
