Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Enjoy helping others, my grandfather, father and cousin were all in the fire service, either volunteer or career. My uncle was also the paid fire chief. Some would say it was inevitable.

I urge everyone to work toward excellence in every aspect of your fire/ems career (rather volunteer or paid). It will set you apart and your opportunities will be enhanced greatly!

Evening Chief! If you ever need additional information or would just like to trade info./stories let me know. Two old timers should still work together. Love the magazine, and would love to help out.

I've always enjoyed reading your articles in Firehouse.

I'm glad to see you discovered yet another effective form of communications here at the Nation.
