Why I Joined Fire/EMS

Greetings Barbara, since I was attending the Oregon EMS conference in Salem and missed your presentation this past weekend, are there any hand-out materials that I should pick up to review? I will check around for another agency that may be hosting a similar event to gain this skill-set during the Academy. If you know of some to contact or if you are bringing that training to a requesting agency, please let me know. Keep up the great work. I look forward to meeting you on the Fire-ground. Mark D.
