Why I Joined Fire/EMS
At first, because chicks dug it (I was with a college ALS Ambulance way back in 1980-something). Now that I'm retired USAF, I need the occasional 2AM adrenaline rush, since my risks of being shot at are significantly lower.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Getting into the thick of things to help someone I don't know
