Hey Andy, thanks in advance for the add. I sent you a request, let me know if you don't get it. I did see your question but I haven't had time to formulate a proper response. We'll get 'er done one of these days.
I was on for a little over two years Sep 88 to Dec 90. (I had to check my records.)
I see some familiar faces, but I'm terrible with names. The guy in back with the hat was the chief's son wasn't he? The guy next to him was a paramedic. I think the guy in the middle row, right side was a lieutenant while I was on. Front row with the hat was the assistant chief and the guy in the white shorts was the chief. You'll have to refresh my memory as far as names go. I do remeber Troy Rotramel.
I have a couple of pics that I'll try to get up on my page.
As far as my career... I was in the Air Force Reserve at Pete when I joined SHVFD. I joined the Lubbock Fire Department in December of 1990, and moved to Texas. I've been here since. I am now a Captain on a truck company. It's a little slower than being on an engine, but it has it's perks.
