About Me:
Blah... Blah... Blah, I was going to fill this out like it says but figured that would just start sounding like you're trying to brag. I've been there and done that like just about everybody else here. I'm pretty much just putting my life back together as best I can after having a major motorcycle wreck a little over 6 months ago. Just to sum up... No helmet, (ouch), massive head injury, 4 Basil skull fractures, 5 deep cranial bleeds, I died on the surgery table but surgeon kept working anyway. Survived somehow and was in a coma for the next 2.5 weeks. In hospital about 5 weeks in multiple ICU's. Spent next 4 months in physical therapy and rehab re-learning how to walk with a walker and cane. Kept an eye patch over one eye at a time to deal with double/blurred vision and vertigo. Had a diagnosed moderate short term memory loss but am fighting to overcome that. Am more stubborn, determined and driven now than ever and just won't quit or give up. Just got back on my 24 hour shift with my crew/captain and station. Good to be back home where I belong. Now just having to make myself a better, brand new man.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Because I've always loved medicine and helping people and didn't want to feel completely helpless anymore to bad events that happen in this world.

Hi David, good to hear from you, I know it's been awhile. I've been working crazy shifts at work so that's why I haven't been on in awhile. Your looking for some good weather? Well, we've been having beautiful weather here in Florida. If I could I would send some your way, I don't mind sharing :0) How's everything else going for you?

Hello there my Friend..I hope this message finds you and yours doing well. It has been a busy time here with work and family life as well. Summer time here is right around the corner and I am looking forward to doing the things that this time of year here in the south allows...like laying under an air conditioner when it is 108 degrees outside...lol..well other things too. Stay safe and keep in touch...Later!! Cliff (a.k.a. Chiefiredog)
