We are not born equal sinners or perfect knock-offs of God. The world tells us whether we're heroes or victims. But, we can decide for ourselves too...

I'm a certified NYS EMT-B as well as a NYS firefighter. Through my departmental training I've acquired certifications in SCUBA/ICE Rescue, RIT Team, FAST Team, HAZMAT Operations Level, Interior Firefighting, Exterior Operations, CEVO 3 and EVOC.
About Me:
I've always been the one to want to help out. Always wanted to be able to make someone elses day a bit easier, and I think that's what I am able to accomplish on a daily basis. I used to work fast food, absolutely hated it. Wanted so much more for myself, not necessarily pay wise, but a more gratifying venue. I have found that by becoming a NYSEMT and firefighter.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
The first time I ever watched someone die, watched them die with nothing or nobody around to help, created the most horrible feeling I hve ever felt. Helplessness. No one should ever be helpless. I want to try and make that a reality. EMS and Fire situations are also a sort of puzzle for me. I love the thrill of problem solving and figuring ways to achieve the ultimate goal, preservation of life itself. I'm a first generation firefighter and EMT in my family, with every intention of keeping it going. This sort of stuff is foreign to my family, but they know why I do it lol....
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I get to choose against God when it comes to people dying...
Top Issues Facing Responders:
BURNOUT.... How does your union treat you?----Treatment of volunteers in the organization... DO's and chiefs need to remember that we are VOLUNTEERS, not employees, and some things are just taking it too far...

On one half the road the sun peaks over the horizon and looms over fog filled valleys. The red orange and pink glow of the flourescent wonder makes me squint a bit as I wander down the middle of the road. I look ahead and see only what I have seen for the past twenty years. A long, long winding road with many voids to the left and to the right. Half of the road harbours all the comforts of day. Singing birds, tall lush forest, a cool, comforting breeze blows through the branches of the… Continue

The Biggest Mistake of my Life...

Posted on August 6, 2008 at 9:11am 1 Comment

Ok, I was driving to work today and happened to stop at a local grocery store for something to drink, when I ran into one of my teachers from high school. For some reason or another, I suddenly started thinking about the time that I had in school. Did I do a good enough job? What things did I miss out on? Could I have done some things differently? If so, what were they?



I'm not going to say what I think most people my age would say. "Oh yes, I had a great time in school!" NO.... I… Continue
