Other Past or Current Departments and Organizations
Started out on the Lindsey Fire Department right out of high school. My dad and brother were members of this department.
I have attended many, many training schools over the past 20+ years. I enjoy going to schools to learn new techniques and mingle with new people to share ideas and stories. Best place to find ways that make things easier.
45 y/o that has been married 23 years. Have 4 children. 3 girls, ages 20, 17, and 14. Then along came my boy, who is currently 8. I also farm part-time on my days away from the 2 fire departments.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Something I enjoy. Being able to help the community and those people in need. it's a way of giving back to the community. We are blessed with the brotherhood of people in this profession who all share the same bond of wanting to be there when people need us most.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love to help those in need.
