I joined the fire department because I wanted to be like my dad. My dad has been in the fire department for as long as I can remember, along with my uncle. Another reason for my joining is that I love to be able to help people, and having people come to me for help. I dont think that there is a better feeling than that of helping someone who is in need.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
helping someone who is in danger or just in need is one of the best rewards anyone can recieve.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
I think that the main issue in our department is getting members enthused and interested in doing other things than just putting the wet stuff on the red stuff. Another thing is the shortage of active members in our department.

Welcome to the family where the language and reasoning important the Border is not in our work is to save lives regardless of color, religion or social position, much less. The important thing in our work does not need language to communicate, or borders to help.
Greetings from Mexico.
