Why I Joined Fire/EMS
It was in the works from the time i ws born...Somone shortly after birth gave my mother who was a nurse a toy Fire Engine!! Then It was the influence of Emergency 51!! So at a very early age i was involved with Fire & EMS as a Jr.FF and was EMT at 16 but could not be primary till 18 because of the laws!!
