Currently an EMT-I in New Mexico, working as a ER Tech while I go to paramedic school. I should finish next August, and CAN'T wait!
(I'm on the Left in the pic) Not too much to say... I enjoy the fun things in life. Usually referred to as "one of the guys" I love hiking, offroading, and playing outside, though my enjoyment of cold weather is limited by my complete inability to snowboard... I drive a jeep, love football, etc. but still enjoy my girly moments & the occasional chick flick... I'm just me, wanna kow more... ask!
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I joined the local Explorers program, allowing me to ride along with local law enforcement and fire departments. Though I intended to ride with police and look into forensic investigation, my first fire call assured me that a cop car was NOT where I wanted to be. I love fire, I really love EMS, and I can't imagine doing anything else...
Why I Love Fire/EMS

Hola Alisha, It wanted in these so special days, to give the thanks for all it received, to build a place where can be with all my family and friends, those of fence and the from a distance. The ones that have accompanied me always and the of now. Those that I see each day and the ones that seldom Find. The ones that have accompanied me in the difficult moments, and the of the happy hours. Those to whom I know deeply, and those to whom I know barely by their appearances. To the ones that without wanting I wounded and the ones that without wanting they wounded me. The ones that owe me and those to whom I owe them a lot. The same old they recalled, and the ones that at times are forgot me. You want to recall to all the ones that passed through my life and to desire them some happy festivals, that can find the peace that need and to enjoy the love of their families and of those that love them. That the Hope, The Love and the Peace Flourish for all You…
