My first call was right after I joined my first department shortly after graduating high school. It was an ambulance call for a GSW of all things, and the patient ended up being a school-aged child. Luckily she was not hurt that bad. But that was my baptism into EMS/Fire.
Wow...Well, about 18 years ago I was sitting at home on a saturday morning when this god forsaken sound started coming out of the red Minitor II pager I had been issued. Brush fire not to far from the county line. I arrived with a Captain and Assistant chief on a very windy unusally warm February day. The fire jumped the road almost as soon as we arrived. Myself and 2 other "Probies" were going at it when we noticed we had been abandoned by our apparatus that took off after the leading edge going through the field at about 50 mph. We worked the flanks, got it out then had no damn clue what to do. We caught a ride on a mutual aid brush truck through the field to find a structure had just become involved. We hauled ass to our truck, donned our gear and went to get an assignment. We soon learned that we (the probies) were the only ones that brought their gear with them and were thrown on the hoselines (the old guys didn't bring gear on a field fire, but we didn't know any better....good thing huh? haha) I came home stinking to high heaven and so dirty I had to take 2 showers.....at that moment, as I stood in the shower, tired, in pain, hungry and dirty ....I was hooked. I knew I would be doing this for the resto of my life.
My first call was on a tanker call for smoke in a building. We got placed available, but it was worth it!
My second call was my first real fire call, it was a four alarm warehouse fire.
