Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Life long calling that I finally answered
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I am a people person. I feel I have much to give back to the community. I also love the commeradery with my fellow public servants.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
I think the top issues facing our industry are funding for one. It seems as we are expected to do more we are given less.
The second thing, that is tied to funding, is as a public industry we have to become more accessable to our public. Most private industry listen to their "customers" in various ways. Fire and EMS has much to learn from private sector. We must learn or perish as a public entity. Govt can always out source us....
