Thanks!

I just wanted to say thanks to all for those wonderful and encouraging comments! I am very nervous but I know I can do it. I went to a rescue call with my boyfriend last week and I was talking with one of the firefighters there and he was telling me how he know that I can do it and he is routing for me. He said that it makes it hard for me because of the girls that join just to say that they are a volunteer. And so the department takes it out on every girl just because of those girls. Well I am… Continue

ambition

I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the fireman has to do believe that his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save lives. ~Edward F. Croker

Training. You can't make everyone happy!

At the end of last year I had sevral firefighters on my combo dept ready to quit because we never did any training. The dept was a good ol' boy dept and I desided to make a change. At the end of last year I put my name in for the training officers spot. I got it! Now I'm a Lt. and T.O. I have spent nights on end to setup the training and cover everything from the basics to RIT training. Lastnight we did a a drill on pumping water from 1 engine to another engine in a 2 engine responce sernario.… Continue

Great Weekend

We had a blast this weekend. Two days of training. We had two simulated vehicle fires and a burn trailer. For some of the firefighters there it was their first time getting close to fire and seeing what it can do. I loved it and can't wait to get to do it again.

The Road to Satisfaction

Well, summer is rapidly approaching and since I've decided not to take on a summer school session I decided to get a job with an EMS system. I have done interviews and tests for a couple and I've been told that I have one particular position but I won't post until I have the letter in my hand. I've been working on finishing up my Rescue Tech and Firefighter I and II. Still have a couple of classes left for FF but I did finish my Rescue Tech a couple of weeks ago. I should be entering a night… Continue

AM I A FIREMAN YET ?

*Am I A Fireman Yet?? * In Phoenix , Arizona , a 26-year-old mother stared down at her 6 year old son, who was dying of terminal leukemia. Although her heart was filled with sadness, she also had a strong feeling of determination. Like any parent, she wanted her son to grow up & fulfill all his dreams. Now that was no longer possible. The leukemia would see to that. But she still wanted her son's dream to come true. She took her son' s hand and asked, 'Billy, did you ever think about what… Continue

You've got to be kidding.....Right?

Okay, here we go again. As if the H&R Block commercials weren't bad enough, NOW Arby's has a commercial out that shows an ambulance crew giving food to treat people. It's no wonder everyone takes EMS for granted when they see things like this. We in EMS have to start pulling together to combat these comic stereotypes. It should not matter whether you are in public or private service, paid or volunteer, you are an EMT first and foremost. This bickering going on in the service NEEDS TO… Continue

Louisiana FF Death Burial 4-26-08

I attended the funeral for Riley Joesph Terrebone Jr. this weekend. The attendanced was fantastic, attendence, by local, pd, sheriffs office, ems, state pd, and local and some nonlocal fire departments. There is a difference between attending a funeral and helping with setup and organization. FF just don't need to show up to the visitation and funeral, but before to help organize the setup for the prossession, and gravesite attivities. This is when we should come together to help out.
