First call I went on was the worst: Car vs. Motorcycle. Victim in 3 pieces on Rt 9D, Cold Spring.
In West Des Moines, my friend Pat and I were the interior attack team on engine 11. Seemed like whenever there was a working fire, we were in the jump seats. In Ossining, I have done three interior knockdowns, and every time I have teamed with my friend Donny. I got to diversify.
After a tragic fire at my families' home. I was so impressed by the work and help and compassion shown by the firefighters that day that I knew I wanted to join. Now I love the work, the fellowship, and helping others.
