If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
My father was the first Fire Chief of Newton Twp. Fire Dept. in Muskingum Co., Ohio. My Uncle George was a member of that dept. My brother, Craig, was a Captain of that dept., that died in an auto accident less than 1/4 of a mile from the dept, on his way to Paramedic class. My nephew is now a member of Newton. My husband became an EMT/FF when we were dating. He said he realized if he wanted to spend time with me he better join the Fire Dept..
I have always loved medicine and the sounds of the sirens. It's a "Family Tradition". It's my LIFE!

Hi Janelle What a sad day was that when that photo on your profile was taken. I still have a pull out book with the front cover of that guy. Do you perhaps the name and address of that firefighter? Be safe JJ south africa
