I started the fire service when I was 19. Our town has seen much growth from a small country town to a large overgrown city. We have the name of race city USA because the majority of the NASCAR teams are located in our town. Plus we have Lake Norman as a vacation hot spot for the area. I have been with the fire service for 27 1/2 years and look forward to retiring from the city. However we all know real firefighters never truly retire!!!
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Dad was firefighter and I don't know any other job that you can have this much fun!!!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The paycheck (lol) helping people comes a close second!
