Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I joined the Clinton Area Fire and Rescue Phoenix company because i wanted to make a difference in peoples lives and to also give back to the community that I love so much. Also my brother who is a desert storm and desert shield war vet from the Navy he was medically discharged and he joined the fire department a year before I did. Me and my brother never was really close when we where growing up but since he and his family moved back home and so did I. I want to be closer to my brother so I decided to join as one of many reasons why I joined the fire department.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Not only the rush of running in to help a person that is cring for your help but i feel like i play a big part of this game we all call life!

We don't get paid even close for the type of danger we put our selves in on a day to day basis but that's not why we do the job.
