Why I Love Fire/EMS
You never know what the next hour will bring.

yeah, I tried to get him to join the volunteers here, but he didn't want to have to take on the fire training and our departments are all FF/EMT - which is kind of a shame and we've lost some mighty fine EMTs that way, both professional and volunteer!

Thanks for the invite! And yes, we're practically neighbors :) Actually, I work with a gal from Denver City. Her husband also works for the city and, if I'm not mistaken, was a volunteer EMT when they lived in Texas! It's a small world, isn't it?
