Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I joined to work with my community and friends that already belonged. I learned the love I had for firefighting and the friendship there was with belonging.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I enjoyed the excitement of dealing with emergencies and the satisfaction of making a good save on a fire or helping others. Since I can no longer perform active firefighting 911 dispatching fills the void.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Proper training and seriousness to all incident responded to. Too many responders take some incidents too lightly. ALL emergency services need to learn to work together with a multi agencies response plans.Poloticians need to learn the extreme need for proper funding for these services.
