It gives me the opportunity to help my community. There are definately good and bad days, but the good definately outways the bad. It is a challenge at times and you never know what you are really going to be responding to and always have to be ready for whatever comes in your path.

I'm sorry for the intrusion! I'm a FF in California, and I'm looking to spread the word to my east coast brothers & sisters about a safe alternative to candles. As you may know, candles cause an estimated 15,600 fires in residential structures, 150 deaths, 1,270 injuries, and $539 million in estimated direct property damage each year. (*US FA)
Anyway, I came home one morning after my shift and my wife had left one of her "fu-fu" smelling candles burning all night long. That would have been great - "Fire Captains house burns to the ground, film at 11:00." So my wife, found this product that I have been raving about ever since. It is a flameless, wickelss and sootless alternative to candles, and they smell great! This business has been exploding in the mid-west and west coast - 100,000 reps total; (14,000 in Texas, 4400 in California)
There are only 525 reps in New york! If you or anyone you know might be interested in an opportunity to provide a safe product it could be very lucrative for them.
If you get a chance, check out my wifes webiste for more product information, and if you have any questions, there are contact links on her site. thanks for your time!
