Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I joined for reasons of admiration for the proffesion . In uncertain times where the brotherhood tradition seems to fade . I will always love the fire sevice and I encourage the younger generations to preserve our long traditions , which is one of many things that makes our preffesion unique , special something to be proud of ..."Leather Forever"

Why I Love Fire/EMS
I admire the brotherhood , the fact that we take care of each other in the worst conditions and we help those want and need help .
Top Issues Facing Responders:
changes in administration . The loss of experience as large number retire , not helping a smoother transition in the next generation resulting in fleecing of traditions and the image that is being lost as respectful healthcare proffesionals, and public servants . The threats of loosing our collective bargaining rights due to weak unions and big changes in an ever growing large fire department . The threats of cuts on taxes and funding for fire and ems services .
