Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Raised around it. My father has been a firefighter for approx 30 years. Second generation firefighter/EMT.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I like helping people plus I love the rush of a good call. I guess that sounds bad cause no one ever wants to see anyone hurt or lose property.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Lack of interest/no new members. Also same with EMS.
