I am married to a firefighter and enjoy my career with 911. Seth & I like working out, going to the beach, photography and enjoying our days off together with family and loved ones. I spoil my 3 beautiful neices every chance I get. I'm currently taking classes thru JSU online to obtain my degree in Emergency Mgmt and Telecommunications. I'm a pushover for a good mystery/spy thriller- especially Vince Flynn or Catherine Coulter (FBI series) novels. I also like crime dramas and mysteries (Law & Order series, The Closer, Burn Notice, Rescue Me, X-Files, etc...) or comedies. -- and yes- i take GREAT pleasure in paging my husband out all cheerful and happy at 2 & 3 am!! (I'm horrible, i know =) ) All in all, we're from the country who are easy going & laid back who believe in the 3 basics God, Family & Country.

Top Issues Facing Responders:
From my side of the coin, making sure that we get the most accurate information from our callers and relay it to the responders-- they're not all wearing kevlar!
Rhonda, Thanxs for the update on Ike.Glad to hear you are safe. From what I have seen on the boob tube its pretty bad.I have yet to make contact with my friend from American Air Boat Corp in Orange Tx. Well take care and be SAFE !!!!!!!!!!
The best advise I can give anyone doing this job is don't let it get to you. It can be very stressful, especially when you want to help someone and cant. Talk it out, yell what ever it takes. You are humane so things will bother you, just dont let it get to you. Good Luck Are you on facebook or My space too?
