My name is Sune Schønnemann, and I'm a volunteer firefighter in Denmark, a small European country of about 6 million people (Europe, east of UK, north of Germany and west of Sweden)..
I came to FFN, to check out how you do it "over there"..
A bit about my career.
I started in a local medic-unit, primarily covering motorcross-events, so i got a lot of experience with high impact damages..
After a year or so, I went on to be in a specialist communications and CBRN unit, in the governmental DEMA - Danish Emergency Management Agency. DEMA has two volunteer departments covering the entire country, and the one I'm in, counts 300 volunteers, and covers about 4 million souls, and our nations capital.
In Denmark, about 20% of the nations men in the age of 18, will be enlisted for either military service - I choose to enlist my self, as a firefighter for a period of six months - just for the fun of it.
And thats about it.. I'm done with my enlistment, and now I'm back at my DEMA department.
