After putting off following my dream so my hubby could follow his in Active Duty military and raising our girls, I am going for my dream. I volunteer with Station 7 Holly Ridge VFRD. I completed my EMT-B training in May '10 and passed my state certification exam in June '10. I am currently working on my 1403 Certification on my way towards my FF1. It is a process but I am enjoying each and every step of the way. Onward and Upward!
Fire/EMS is in my blood. I am 3rd generation volunteer firefighter. My grandfather was a volunteer firefighter. My father did volunteer fire and then EMS for the better part of 30 yrs. I was going to fires before I could walk. I know that this is what I am suppose to be doing with my life.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Because I am helping my friends, neighbors, and complete strangers on some of the worst days of their lives.
