Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Started working aircraft crash and rescue in the Navy. When I got out of the Navy I decided to enroll in the Fire Science degree program at Portland Community College in Portland, Oregon. The rest, as they say, is history.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
You tell people what you do and they look at you like you're crazy.
Hi Chief, I have a passion for the health and safety of our Firefighters. Scene safety depends on excellent Incident Command leadership. I have some information I'd like to share with you. If that's OK, please send your email address and I'll send along.
Thanks, John Bierling John@IncidentMT.com
