Other Past or Current Departments and Organizations
Queen City Fire Dept.
Firefighter/Training Officer, First Responder, Haz-Mat Awareness, Hoepfully EMT soon
Well I am 1 of 3 Training Officers, I usually train personnel. on SCBA and Drivers Training and Truck Operations. While the other 2 Officers Train others on everything else. I been a volunteer firefighter for 4 yrs. now and a Training Officer for over a year. Usually since theres not many ppl that shows up on our dept. at a fire I either end up running the truck an at a scene or driving or when it comes to a structure and we have to fight interal-attack i end up doin that and thats awesome. I prefer running the truck operations when it comes to car fires or anyother fires that doesnt involve structures!!!!!
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I joined to help ppl out and to better serve the community that I live in.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Being First on scene and all the excitement when it comes to fighting a fire especially a structure fire and helpin ppl out in the community.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
I feel like that paid / volunteer firefighters dont get enough credit for the job they do. Also i belive the paid firefighters in the state of Missouri is way under paid. Then theres Training not enough resources for smaller departments to get the right training at times

This is my facebook link
uh well im not like one to run into the fire like everybody else, I usually take pictures and then I start helping them as much as I can. Like at medicals I can get the cot and help lift the person onto it and buckle them in all that, at car wrecks while they are extracating I can talk to the person in the car still and get them blankets and help pick their stuff up to put in the tow truck and at fires I get the firefighters water, help them with their airpacks, sometimes help with cleanup so im not useless I guess.
But really im the photographer but nobody here treats me like that. They treat me like im equal with them for the most part because i've been around the station for a really really long time.
We haven't got a single call yet today. Oh I didn't tell you i've been talking to the publisher guy from fire engineering and he was telling me he was very interested in getting pics from me for a cover page :)
Take the trucks. I don't have a personal vehicle lol.
My padre has lights on his sometimes I ride in his truck with him but im at the station a lot more then him. Like the last 2 days i've been there alllllll day and im going there at 7am tomorrow too.
