I started firefighting as Jr/Explorer member when I was 13, two months from turning 14. Ever since then, I stuck with it and became firefighter 1 certified in NJ. The fire academy I attended didn't offer probaord cert until 2012 and I graudated in 09 so as soon as I have all the requirements to take the challenge for probaord cert in the state of DE, I am going to do that then work on firefighter 2. I love the job and I love helping others. I'm very down to earth and laid back. I do what needs to be done and I do whatever I have to do to get the job done. I'm also huge on training, going to classes, and learning.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
