Went through them all. FFI, FFII, Even when they had FF III, D/O Engine & Aerial, FO I, NIMS, IC, Haz-Mat Specialist and Asst. Team Leader. yadda, yadda, yadda. We're a small Dept. so everyone has to do just about everything. I still get to clean the toilets and take out the garbage in the morning. It's so glamorous being a Captain!

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
While in college(1977), became dissatisfied with what I was pursuing and wanted to do something that could have an immediate impact on people. Liked it from the beginning and the rest is history.

The tractor is my part time business and I shot a swimsuit calendar. So, to answer your question, yes the tractor has fought brush fires when my burn piles get away from me on windy days. I swear they did not need the third alarm, that was overkill. lol
