Growing up a group of my friends were firefighters and I couldn't do it because of having asthma. I moved to Virginia, and one of the jobs I had, the EMT's were always stopping by on their way back from a call... after talking to them several times, and becoming friends with them, it's what I wanted to do. I love to help people.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love the adrenaline rush that I get when the tones go off for one thing, and for the other, I just love helping people.

Your Firefighter Nation for Firefighting EMS and Rescue Box
Grant me the wisdom so that I may treat those of your children that lay at my feet. Let my hands be gentle, sure and swift to impart to them your sacred gift. Let me see only a patient's need not their color, race or creed. Help me always to be my best even when it's on my hours rest. Grant me the insight to understand why patients of mine are going to die. Let me remember that when they do there is a wonderful life in Heaven with You. Lord, if in the time of duty I should fall help my family to hold their heads tall. For it was You who decided that I should be one of your chosen few, an EMT.
My cousin, Mark Kelsey, was one of the Charleston nine. We love you and we miss you Mark... R.I.P
