Im a 3rd generation firefighter, I have had a few jobs before joining a local Vol. dept. After joining I knew that this was what I wanted to do. I enjoy being able to help others in need. Working for a career dept. has its bad days but for the most part it is like having a dream job. I thrive off of having the ability to work with the members of "OUR" shift and the team effort that is put forth for the the citizens to make a difference in one persons life.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Do I need to answer that, if you do this then you know the answer!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The thrill of knowing that you have made a difference in someones life.
