About Me:
I started towards my goal of being a paid firefighter when I was 30. Most places in central Illinois won't hire you after 34-35. I didn't know that at the time. I'm now 39. Anybody know of places hiring an "old" guy? I have 1 son who is in college, and a dog who is a few months shy of 16 years old.
Day Job:
Laborer
Relationship Status:
Divorced
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Wanted to since I was a kid. I had a career changing moment that gave me the chance to start working towards this. I like doing what others are scared of. We go in when others are going out, right?
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I get to help people, and I'm looked up to
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Trying to stay up on the current "right" way to assess and give treatment. The state tells us one thing, and 6 months to a year later it might be changed back to the previous way.

Who has heard of the saying that a fire doubles every minute? It obviously depends on the fuel load, but can anyone show this in writing?
