I consider myself very new to the Volunteer Fire Dept. scene even though I have officially been with the dept. a little over two years, I have been going to all meetings for over two and half years. My job is in a different town so I don't get to make a lot of calls and when I am home, if it is a night call, I can't go because we have a son that I can't leave in the middle of the night. I love firefighting, but I love my children, so I have to make a call there which will I do. Luckily, my husband goes to the night calls.
Hi from Santa Barbara! Cool to hear that both you and your husband serve your community. Please stay safe and be careful. If I can help you and your husband out with anything, don't hesitate to drop me a line.
