I have grown up around a fire station since the age of 3. I joined the fire dept as a cadet at the age 13. I took my first fire class at the academy 2 weeks after I turned 16.So that's about 20 years total in the fire service and I started as a NREMT-FR about 10 years ago and progressed my way up to a Paramedic 4 years ago. i have been an instructor for about 5 years now.
