I love to SCUBA Dive, Rockclimb, train in MMA, and plan on working my butt off for the next 4-5 years to become a Smoke Jumper(My dream job). I fell into Wildland fires by accident, but loved every second of it. I came back to Michigan to work "normal" jobs, but really felt empty. I belong either in the Military or part of an Search & Rescue/Fire Team. It's hard coming from working a dedicated career and coming back to unimportant jobs.
I am hoping to get back out there this season(2009), and get my WEMT cert and train in Survival & SAR. Specifically swift water i'd like to specialize in.
Anyway, if you want to know more, just hit me up.
Didn't you see what state I live in? There are no jobs! LOL
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I get to help others and protect people from losing their homes, livestock, and livelyhoods
