We train our butts off. We are all robots who know exactly what to do by instinct.
So training, yeah I got that
When I started my career I wanted to be Chief, then I settled on Capt., now I think being a fireman or engineer (driver) is the only way to go.
Political BS made me want to become a business man instead. I am hoping my website will take off and I can sleep uninterupted for life
My step-dad and uncle were Riverside City, CA firefighters. Once I had my first interior direct attack on a fire I was hooked. Actually saving peoples lives got me really intersted in EMS. And, of course, the ladies love firemen
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Hangin out with the boys and shootin the shit
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Political bullshit in smaller departments. My career has suffered greatly from personality discrimination, ie I do not play well with others.
If you want to succeed, do not give your opinion until it is given to you.
Well the Barrio is the same. We still get quite a bit of fire. The rigs are falling apart and the station is falling in around us but we have a heck of a time. No we don't get many bikini's around here and to tell you the truth I don't think I would want to see our clientel in that attire. Be safe bro
Dude I remember you. I hope you are doing good. Everything is going well here. I am riding out for Al Cothran at 7's and actually took a Chief's test today. Take the assessment next week. Wish me luck.
