Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I wanted to help my community and do something that could make a difference in someone elses life, and also I wanted that something to be exciting and fun. I found out firefighting is all those things grouped into one. It is hard work but it never seems to be work when you are out there doing something you love to do!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
its the greatest feeling in the world to help someone when they are having the worst day anyone could have.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Funding for updated equipment and maintaining current equipment
