All is ok up here. we have had 3 search and rescues this past week where one guy was found in glennie at the bar, one guy was found in mio, and a family was found in one of the heating shacks on one of the trails up here and quite a few medical. our chief told us we were having a slow month for calls a couple weeks ago and last week he apologized for saying it. it has been busy to say the most.
Thanks for the warm welcome. I love the site and looking forward to having the support of others as I start my Fire classes in Jan. I may have to take you up on your offer to stop in ,I am up in Northern MI often.
Thank you! I always try to stay positive :) It is a lot of work, but it will be well worth it! I'll be doing something I love to do, and provide a great future for my daughter. There will be some great role models in her life, too! :) Good luck to your brother!
