I have taken every class that anyone could possibly take, and the cool hands on one's mutiple times.
I work hard to always learn something from every step of life. I work for the county highway department. I love being a volunteer fire fighter. I wanted to explore a career in the fire service, but my wife and I decided to have a family here in my hometown instead. I have no regets with the decision. We have a wounderful little three year old baby girl.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
A friend and I were playing play staion and his father, a life long member of the department, came home with two application's. And I quote " you boys need a hobby " The rest is history.

Top Issues Facing Responders:
In this area, I feel the biggest issue facing the volunteer fire dept. is that most departments have an ambulance. My dept. does not have one. We use a paid staffed service avaible from a local hospital. When our dept. gets banged out to every thing from your basic bandaide calls to a bad car crash, I know that we will only be out for a half hour or so. All these dept's with riggs have the same half an hour, plus the time to and from the hospital. I feel it puts a huge strain on the members.
Hey There! I hope that things are going well for you. I haven't been on the site much as of late. Lot's of studying for my EMT class. Only 2 weeks left. We have our "hands on" final on the 12th and our written final on the 17th. Man this has been a long class!
Hey there! I just wanted to stop by and see how things were going? And be the first one to say Welcome to September! Where did the summer go? I am getting knee deep into my EMT class now. So we will see how it goes. Stay Safe
Hey there! Just dropped by to say hello. Not too much going on here. We have our annual open house and company inspection today. This past week we had a 2 story frying pan fire. Kept is confined to the kitchen and the stove. But it was a hot hot and humid night nonetheless. Stay Safe.
