About Me:
Just an old guy whose family started in the fire service when I was 2 weeks old, and I just can't seem to get it out of my system. Now retired, but not tired, we are into several organizations that are Fire related:, (we used to provide EID services for three FDs), and (helping to train people in a new assistance service for 1st Responders). My wife was an EMT/EMT Trainer (CA & ID(. So yes, we may be "over the hill" and on the downward side picking up the pace, but we are still supporting America's Fire, Rescue & Law Enforcement agencies throughout the United States. Oh, by the way... Yes, we drive an old folks car (1988 Lincoln Town Car) but people love our other vehicle - 1988 Ford/Horton Ambulance! We like Ford Products & older vehicles and just couldn't resist this unit that we resurrected from destruction!
