Why I Joined Fire/EMS
To save lives. Whether I'm Fire Fighting, EMS, Rescue or instructing Extrication or CPR...I just don't feel whole unless I am out saving some ones life or at least making a difference in their life just being there at there time of need. My entire life is all about helping others, whether I am at work, home or socializing.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
the idrenaline rush, the simple "Thank you", the feel of a childs arms around your neck,and a simple smile of gratitude, the glistening in a childs eye when you just saved her daddy,a tear of joy in a foster childs eyes when you just saved her only friend in the world...her puppy,the dropping on a mothers knees in relief when you saved her baby,a grown mans hug when you just saved his wife, and the list goes on, and on, for the last 22 years, no other feeling in the world like it...ever.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
I feel the government needs to realize how important firefighters, rescuers and ems are.The Government pays people to sit behind a desk and push pencils all day on whether a chicken came first or the egg, but they cant pay emergency workers, whom risk their lives daily for the lives of strangers? There are far too many volunteer stations, and not enough paying stations. I feel the states are also responsible.But if a county are to have an emergency station, it has to be volunteer because the state is to busy paying for daisies on the side of a congested road or busy paying a golfing trip or luncheon with your tax dollars.How about stop worrying about how comfy the prisoners are and their education time, and use the money to pay the emergency workers.I say...Pay the emergency workers, they risk their lives, the state and government needs to risk their wallets .
