Other Past or Current Departments and Organizations
Partner in a small telecommunications contracting company in Houston. I have a wonderful wife and two fantastic children and we live in Jersey Village. I volunteer my time between the EMS and Church, work as little as possible and spend the rest of my time with my family. I am currently an EMT but attend Fire Academy starting next month.
There seems to be a lack of education in the general populous regarding First Aid, Self Care, Fire Prevention and how not to obstruct First Responders as they approach a scene whether it be an MVA or a structure fire etc.

Stay Safe!! Jolande,
Thanks for your words of encouragement and for forwarding my product to your admin staff. Every accident report includes the question, "How could this accident have been prevented?" Well, I hope this is one way. And, like you said, an entire engine can be outfitted for a couple hundred bucks and be much safer to the people who respond on it. What is that worth when you are low on air, lost, or separated from your crew? I also appreciate your enthusiasm for the job and for recognizing the important parts thereof. Keep up the good work.
