Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I joined initially to integrate into a new town but after getting to know the lads I would be working with everything changed. Now my kids are proud of what I have achieved getting in and recently passing my truck driving test so hopefully with time make Driver Mechanic.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I now know what I do actually makes a difference. The relief on someones face when you arrive makes it all worth while.

Everthing challenges responders evryday, never knowing what your going to face from one day to the next. On going training is a must because its too easy to get complacent and a good support network.
