Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I joined the family back in 2006 when I went to New Jersey on a short hiatus with Mountain Lakes Vol. Fire Department. I loved it and officially got bit by the bug. I have always have had a nack for helping others. I can not see myself doing anything else.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love to give back and help others.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
the ever changing face of the job, such as hotter fires, WMD, and Terrorism. MCIs are becoming more and more common through out the world. and MCIs can be very stressful. Now I am not saying that all MCIs are all terrorist related, but with traffic moving and a faster pace, and cars and trucks being able to carry more passangers. Stuff happens, and that is what we are here for.

Pleasure to meet you sir. My name is Dina. I reside in Florida and I am a state certified paramedic/emt. Working on completing my FF1 & 2. Looking forward to chat. By the way would you have any relation to Timothy Hester here in Florida? He is a great friend of mine and was my paramedic instructor.
