I joined the Cle Elum Vol. FD in 2004 and obtained my EMT-B in 2005. I was promoted to Captain in 2007 and elected to Asst. Chief in 2008-2009. I moved to Vancouver, WA in 2010 and joined Clark County FD 3 as an Intern FF.

Relationship Status:
In a Relationship
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I was talked into joining the Vol. FD by a co worker who kept telling me about how much fun it was and what a great experience it was. After a couple of months I decided to join the FD, fell in love with it and haven't looked back since.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I enjoy helping others and it gives me a sense of fullfilment.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
I think funding is number one as far as issues we face and staffing is a close second. Especially for volunteer departments who have below adequate equipment and resources because the funds are just not there to upgrade everything that needs it right away.

Hi Nathan, Thanks for your comment on my post, " Volunteers firefighters are not real ?". It's a shame that this BS, has to go on among ourselves. It's supposed to be a fraternity, I can expect it from the press and the public, but from us, no way can I accept it. Anyway, take care, stay safe and enjoy the holidays!
