Other Past or Current Departments and Organizations
I used to be on the Buena Vista Rescue Squad, but I decided to go to Lexington Lifesaving Crew to pursue better opportunities.
I have CPR certification and am currently enrolled in an EMT-Basic course which wraps up in December. I will be taking the next available class for EVOC as well.
I am 20 years old, soon to be 21. I have been involved with EMS and Rescue for almost a year now and I enjoy every minute of it. Besides volunteering my time at my local Rescue Squad I enjoy hunting and fishing, 4-wheeling, mudd-boggin', a lot of non-typical girly girl things. lol. If you would like to know more about me, feel free to send me a message or comment. I don't get on here every day so it may take a while for me to message you back!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
