Other Past or Current Departments and Organizations
Both departments are great. I work with good dedicated people. I consider myself lucky to be surrounded by the people I work with. Like talking about my mistakes so other will learn. I worked on both sides of the fence as a contract FF/medic, Part time and Full time in the burbs all well as Chicago.
Like to drill. FF II, EMT-P/ FAE/ Haz Mat Tech- A
I Enjoy the fire service. Some times I look at the firehouse while I'm at work at cant believe a job like this exists. I like both sides of the floor, Fire and EMS. I dont think we are heroes. I believe that other people benefit from the fact that we get to do what we love.
avoiding people that annoy me

Hi Paul, I see you had a comment to Mike Adams, so I though I should drop you a line. Last Time I commented to you was when your profile was hard to read, Glad U changed it, it's better on my eyes. i was in Chicago 1n 1996 for a short stop over, apart form the Taxi ride I had, all was great over there, I would go back to America in a heart beat. Hope U are well and hope it stays that way.
Cheers for now - Leo
