About Me:
I was a 9/11 volunteer with NYC Transit. I am presently a volunteer firefighter with the Assn. Aux - Vol Firefighters in West Lawrence, NY, with the rank of Deputy Chief, on a disaster response team. I also volunteer, with the following organizations: NYC Medical Reserve Corps and Red Rover Responders.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
After volunteering at Ground Zero on the pile, I felt that I needed to do more to help out the next time another disaster occurs. I then became involved in disaster response as a volunteer with several organizations. In 2008, I joined the fire service. I am grateful, that I am able to serve those in their time of need and give back to the community.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love being a part of the fire service, because it is truly a brotherhood, proud in tradition, and always there to serve.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Top issues that I feel are facing responders in the volunteer fire service are, recruitment and retention. Also the lack of funding for updated equipment, supplies and training is especially hard, on smaller departments.
