Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I had to go to the Fire Station every other Saturday to collect for my paper route. Lousey tippers too. You know who you are. Then they asked me to wax the roof of the engine. The Chief thought I should join for insurance purposes.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Every once in a while you get a little satisfaction out of a job well done.
