Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love being with emergency responders (they're good folks).
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Health and Safety - I am on a mission to help responders improve their overall wellness. When we are healthy; physically, emotionally, and financially, then we can focus our attention and energy on helping the community.

The Opportunity

At 64 I have found The Opportunity and I am sharing it with everyone. Part one is the opportunity for real physical wellness. A healthy body will serve us better for a long, exciting, and prosperous life. The household products in our homes that we inhale, ingest, and absorb everyday are actually killing us! I have found the products that are toxin free, more effective, and often less expensive than the grocery store brands. This is for everyone. If you desire to achieve the best of good health - please contact me immediately.

Part Two is the opportunity for true financial wellness. If you want your own business, if you could benefit from some additional income, most important: If you can grasp the thrilling idea of how residual income can positively change your life and provide lifelong financial good health - please email with your contact information.Thank you, John Bierling

Hi John. You are my first friend on FirefighterNation. I took a couple of classes at NFA. That is where I met my husband, Chris Waters. Did you know him? He was the Haz Mat chair at NFA.
