Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Well, It was a family thing, grandfathers, my father, uncles, you get the picture. And as my father said ' the worst thing I ever did was take that boy to the firehouse" when he was 2y/o since then he's there 24/7. I really enjoy the fire service and all it has to offer, but I also enjoy helping others when their not at their best or have befallen to some other calamity or disaster in their life. Yes, the fire service was in my blood. Thanks Dad.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
It's my mistress, and I love helping others
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Terrorism, Bio- Terrorism, The Economy, Budget Cut's less broters and sisters on the job. ( Back to overtime and minimum manning) station Closures. Health and welfare issues. More intense Training in the future.
