The lunatic then went on shooting four others before turning the gun on himself.

Hi Meris, No, I do not work for a department anymore, I am retired from the Tampa Bay area, located in Florida. I came up here to complete a Masters program, and just finished. I am not looking for employment at a state training agency, university or community college, has a director/coordinator or instructor. I like it up here and the area is really nice, there are a lot of things to do. I do not know many people, so It can be a little lonely. Thanks for responding back, to me. How far is your station from Arlington. I am most of the time on-line so you can find me. Take care Billy

Thank you so much for the comment! Oh, do you work for the ACFD? That's actually where I hope to work after graduation, if my plans go accordingly. Do you like the area? My good friend Taylor is from Arlington, and I know he loves it.

I recently started working to get pre prepared for my future endeavors I just started off running a mile, then doing some upper body exc as well as situps. Yes. I did start off with smaller weights. As for a personal trainer, I can't afford one. But, a good friend of mine seems to know alot about it, so he helps me a lot, which I'm thankfull for.. Also, I'm very thankfull for all your help as well. my email address is luocean23@yahoo.com

Hello Denise, Madeira beach, Kenneth city...You need to start working on your upper body, and some leg exercises. By your photo you do have a lot of upper body strength, and you will need this just to be an EMT. Eat a lots of carbs and the right carbs, and workout, not mush running, start slow with the weights. Go to the gym find a trainer and tell him or her your what you want to accomplish, the best help for you would to be friend a woman firefighter, she can help you. Be safe. Billy
