All training has been with the department and the training programs offered within. I am the department Training Officer, an EMS Lt, and CPR/AED Training Center Falculty member. All in all, I stay quite busy.
I am an ER EMT Supervisor at a local hospital. I have spent 18 years in Youth Ministry as of three years ago. Yup, no longer working with teenagers, and I miss it terribly.

Hey Neil! Appreciate your reply. I am considering joining the CVFD within the near future, can you tell me a bit what it's like to volunteer with them? My job allows me to be at home so i have a ton of free time and might even make firefighting a career. I live in Sugar Land and CVFD is the closest but i'd have to be at the station a lot which i wouldn't mind. I don't think i've heard one bad thing about CVFD after asking around for a while. If you have time i'd love to know more about the training and what's involved. Also some things like life at the station, the different opportunities one could do at CVFD(would like to learn truck and equipment/tool maintenance), any anything else you'd like to share. I do understand that most calls are medical so i have somewhat of a realistic idea of what the job is about. I am also losing excess weight and trying to buff up a bit later down the road to make myself more useful. Thanks Neil, hope to hear from you soon. You can email me if you want chechnya at gmail.com

Keep in touch.
