Never in the service ..... Im just a TRUE lifetime supporter.. Read my story and you'll know why.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Im not...But all of my family are in the biz... Thank you everyone for the kindest of welcomes. You guys have a true friend in me and I have a true love for what you do. Im not a fire fighter nor am I in the service at any level, however, I was raised by the breed. I have 3 uncles, 1 cousin and many many friends from birth till now that are fire fighters. I was running barefoot in a station at the age of 6, and at the age of 6 is when my first crush happened on a fire fighter. He was the guy who could put a penny in the gum ball machine and turn it half way, shake the machine and all the gum would just fall right out... I guess you can say it was love at first gumming...Also while in elementary school a fire station served as my day care as it were my Uncles station less than 200 yards from my school so everyday thats where I'd have to go until my parents could come get me. From then on it became a second home and all the fire guys my second family. Its where I get my sarcastic feisty yet often time bitchy self too. Being around that many hose jockeys in a life time can rub off on ya...LOL. But none-the less I wanted to make sure you all knew Im not a 9/11 monger or regular station groupie. My passion for you all is genuine and it has history. So there ya have it a lil insight on why a chic with no fire fighter skills has invaded your site.... I hope none of you mind....Not that it would matter Im here to stay.... There's that feisty side I was speaking of. You guys all should know . You guys were my hero's long before 9/11 and before America thought it was cool to be on board. I keep in my heart the 343 but I never forget the countless others before and after that day......Peace and Love to the masses...Heather B
