Why I Joined Fire/EMS
my dad was a firefighter for years and i wanted to be just like him. Well time has passed and he has retired, and now deceased. Now my son wanted to be just like me and grandad. I feel that I am helping my community and others as I work for fire/ems and teach for them both at a state and local level.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
