My dad was a volunteer firefighter for a few years when I was a kid, and that gave me some interest in doing it myself when I got older. I didnt start until my early 30's after experiencing some personal/family tragedies and seeing how the fire service showed up to help us - complete strangers. I wanted to be one of those who respond on someones worst day to try making it a little better, and I wanted to do so without recieving any recognition for it. Volunteer fire service is a way for me to do that.
As a bonus for me, my wife just joined my fire company as a firefighter and my older daughter joined our explorer post. Start of a family tradition!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Solving problems and fixing things is what I'm born to do. I get to do that in the fire service.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Company morale/head butting among members

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details. Have a nice day Thanks God bless.
