Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I joined for many reasons my main reason is that I wanted to make a difference, but another reason is that I used to ski race and I watched a fellow racer go down and break his back, I was 16 and leading the rescue when every one showed up it was when that happened that I knew I should persue this
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love helping people and love a challenge in a high stress environment
Chris, Let me know what you are wanting to do as far as events. Do you want to know what the Fireman's Challenge was and the different stages in it and do you want to know what the kids comp. was becasue I can tell you anything that you want. Also I was reading your comments and saw that you were sending people some shirts and was wondering if you would like to trade shirts. If so then I wear a XL. Let me know what size you wear and I will get one for you . I am going to place an order for shirts on Thursday so I can add one in it for you. Let me know.
Take Care and Be safe.
