About Me:
Well im Derek, 19, from the Adelaide hill's town of Balhannah, i respond with the Oakbank/Balhannah Country Fire Service. We attend up to 150 calls a year, and our specialist capability is Hazmat. joined them back in January 2007. Its been an interesting ride from being a Probie to now. Yet, its very early days still.

I work for an Accounting firm, doing IT support part time, meanwhile studying computer studies.

I aim to move into fire/rescue for a career someday, just have to wait and see.
Day Job:
IT Support Officer - Accounting firm
Relationship Status:
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
To give something to the community (and further out) without anything in return.
Initally to take on a challenge of "something different", now to experience life for what it really is outside of desk jockey jobs.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I/We are there for people, when they are most in need. And no two jobs are the same!
Top Issues Facing Responders:
For Volunteers: Time availabilty to attend Firecalls. A Huge amount of Knowledge to retain, on top of normal life/day job knowledge. Volunteer Retention.
