KCFA Class 68, Firefighter 1,2, Hazmat Awareness & Operations, NR/TX EMT-B Panola College. CPR Certified(who isn't!). Hoping to become a Swiftwater Tech, Rope Rescue Tech, Hazmat Tech, Structural Collapse Tech, Trench Rescue Tech.
In east texas I served as an EMT-Basic for Trinity Mother Frances/Champion EMS. I worked in Overton and Henderson. I recently got a position as a resident firefighter with Weir Fire Department and am gathering up as much training as I can until they go paid. Weir is a great lil town but our response area is actually 8,000 people and we do actually have a fair call volume for being a seemingly miniscule place. I am hoping to get a job as an EMT on the side to continue in my EMS field. I'd like to meet with some fellow EMT or firefighters to discuss training opportunities for fellow FDs, or just to hang out in the Austin area.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Always a different call, making a difference.
