Ghosts at the Firehouse

Posted on February 9, 2009 at 2:31am 11 Comments

Every fire department has a history that is capable of going back hundreds of years.

Our firehouse has been standing for a long time... long before I was even born. They say that a ghost is nothing but a memory preserved in time. The people at the firehouse are torn between those who truly believe it is haunted, those who have seen things but ignore it, and those who have never seen anything and are totally skeptic. Based on my own experiences, I fall into the first category I named. I… Continue

I'm Finally On My Own!!!

Posted on July 13, 2008 at 3:18am 1 Comment

It is a scary thing moving out on your own for the first time... but also very exciting. For one, you are free to do what ever you want - within legal limits of course. If you want to stay out late, you don't have to report to anyone, especially your parents. No one is there to tell you what to do. I know my parents love me, but I am quicker to move out while I still know it all. (And that is a figure of speech), because everyone reaches that age sooner or later, and if you hadn't, you're…

My First Auto Extrication

Posted on January 5, 2008 at 10:56pm 2 Comments

About a week ago, I performed my first auto extrication. Last Friday night, we were called to an intersection where someone had pulled out in front of a sheriff deputy. Both drivers were injured, but the deputy was able to get out without having to be extricated. The person in the other vehicle, wasn't so lucky.

Our rescue truck came with a crew of three. We got the assignment of extrication. When we got on the scene, the driver raised the stadium lights, while the person in the…

Everyone who was alive and old enough when 9-11 happened remember where they were, what they were doing, and how they reacted to the tragedy. I remember I was in my seventh grade science class in Charleston, South Carolina when the principal called all the teachers on the intercom to tell them to turn on the TV. When they did, we all just stared at the TV. At first, we really didn't really know what was happening... until we…
