Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I want to be involved with Fire and/or EMS because when I was a Boy Scout, I took part in an emergency medical training program, and I had such a jolt of adrenaline run through me that whole weekend. I feel that God is calling me to use my gifts to help others who are in dire need of medical help and/or rescue. I want to do what I can to be a servant leader, and Fire/EMS is a great place to fulfill that role. The scouts really laid that initial interest in Emergency Services, but it wasn't until a few years later that I knew Firefighting/EMS is where I felt called.

On September 11th, 2001, just like every other schoolchild in the nation, I watched the TV silently as the towers fell. Over the next few days, as pictures from NY were everywhere in the media, I saw one that just hit me hard. It showed a couple firefighters and EMS workers helping people out of the smoke and debris, but everyone was covered with dust, so there was no way to tell who they were, except for their uniforms. It was then that I realized that God was calling me to be an "Anonymous Hero". Too many people are desiring glory attached to their name, but I'm after the glory of knowing that I made a positive difference in someones' life. I want to wear that uniform and have a mother say to her son "That firefighter just saved your daddy's life.", not "Andrew just saved your daddy's life."

I finished Mandatory Level/HazMat Awareness Level/HazMat Operations Level training this past semester while at school, and I'm starting with the local volunteer department once I go back to school.
