My name is Courtney and I am new to the fire service. I plan on become a paid firefighter/EMT in Loudoun or Montgomery County and eventually get my Medic. I love helping people and would do anything for my family. My mom and sister are my life and if I love them to death. I believe in God and know He has made Fire/EMS my calling. I'm me and I'm not going to change myself for others or kiss ass to get places. I work hard to get where I want to be and no one can take that away from me. And whoever hacked into my site and changed this to say I sucked dick and had sex with older guys and everyone else at a station. Get over yourself, don't play behind the computer. Actually have the courage to talk to me if you have a problem with me. I am not a "firehouse whore" I have enough respect for myself to not sleep with everyone around, nor have I had sex with anyone because I am a virgin. So if you hack into this site again and change stuff, remember who the more mature one truly is.
I fell/jumped out of a 3 story window at the age of 2 and God could have taken me then but He didn't. Now I want to give life to those people that still have a chance. My friends started taking me around their fire stations and the first time I walked into a station I knew I wanted to follow a career in it. I love the constant learning of the fire service. It could be from a firefighter that has been in the service longer or a firefighter that has just joined. I also love the brotherhood/sisterhood the service creates.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love helping people. And it's a constant learning process, everyone learns from each other.
