Why I Joined Fire/EMS
It's always been a big dream of mine since I was like four years old to become a firefighter. And well working with Fire, i got into the EMS side of things a few times and loved that just as much. It's a great profession where I get to help people and make a difference in the world.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The adrenaline rush that I get everytime the pager goes off. And being able to help someone when they are having a bad day. Wether its saving there house or Savin their life
Top Issues Facing Responders:
In the volunteer side of the service I think the biggest problems are Physical Fitness, Training, and for some departments dedication to the job. It's not a hobby; It's a 24/7 second job.
Cody send me your email address and I will send some advice on oral interview boards. I sat on our departments interview board. The competition is fierce so obviously the better prepared you are, the better your chances. Good luck.
