Other Past or Current Departments and Organizations
Started on Sussesx Fire Department when I was still in High School with the youth explorer program. Also worked 3 years at a private ambulance company on the North side of Milwaukee. Currently work as standby on Menomonee Falls Fire Dept and am enrolled in an accelerated 22 week paramedic program.
FF-1, EMT-Basic, Paramedic Student
Trying to go career now after leaving fire service for EMS, I am testing all over my area, trying to get something full time. After 12 years as an EMT-B and waiting on the Paramedic wait list for 8 I am about to start the program full time. I am excited for the challenge and opportunities.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
To get involved in my community, and because I enjoy the physical and mental challenges.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I have never found anything as rewarding as this.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
