I'm a level II FireFighter, Basic EMT and HazMat Tech. I have been to Howell Rescue's Extrication training and Bowling Green's 40Hr Heavy Rescue class.
Well I'm married with a 6 yr old son and a 2yr old daughter. I am a Fire Captain and Basic EMT with my department. I work at a Water Treatment Plant as Treatment Plant Operator.
Water Treatment Plant Operator
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Well I just wanted to ride the Big Red Truck and use all the cool tools. Really I wanted to be a Fireman since I was little.. I may be only a volunteer, but theres so much more to it than the community sees. Since I became a FF/EMT it's not been the same. I'll never quit doing what I love.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I get to tear stuff up and knowing that I have helped in the time of need.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Lack of Responders!! There isn't enough people able to volunteer these days. For the volunteer department's money is a major problem. New guide lines are set every year, but there isn't any money given to help follow the rules.
