Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Been around the fire service for my whole life. I joined as a sophomore in high school and its been a wild ride ever since. No longer searching for that elusive career firefighter spot. Recently got on as a Firefighter/EMT-B at the Naval Base nearby....FINALLY. Regardless of if I'm a volunteer or career, its the greatest job on earth and I wouldnt have it any other way.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
being able to make a difference in peoples lives and being a role model for young kids
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Staffing and funding

Yup, I didnt make the cut again. I was really hoping that I would improve over last time where I placed 81st. Oh well though, I still got Indy.

Hey, look, Boston is hiring spring of '08......

First Blog

Okay, so this may not be my very first blog...just my first one on here. Those that have been to my MySpace site know that I do blog on occasion. Just not too often.

Right now, I'm a volunteer here in southern Indiana. I've been in 7 years and I'm currently trying to go career but as some of you already know, its pretty well easier said than done.
