Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Because I wasn't getting much of anywhere with the college program I had been doing. one of my neighbors was going through Paramedic school and when I mentioned to him how much I was enjoying the first aid/CPR class I was taking, suggested that I might be interested in taking the EMT-B class. loved it ever since and recently finished Firefighter training.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I get to help people.

I know....quite an original title. Well...this have been on my mind lately. It's been one of those trips where you're reminded very much in the face about how fragile and precious life and health is. to sum the last month my sister-in-law spent the better part of a week in the hospital for and after major abdominal surgery. Everything went fine. however there was worry in the whole process, as her sister passed away a little before Christmas due to complications from a couple minor… Continue
