In Memory of former Assistant Chief & Vice President Michael Francis Krakosky

Posted on January 19, 2010 at 9:43am 0 Comments

Back in June of 1992 when I first joined the volunteer fire department, I met a slighly older gentleman by the name of Michael Francis Krakosky or as I quickly found out his nick name "Slick".

Not sure why but he seemed to take an interest in me and was my first aid instructor, which at the time was enough to ride the ambulance. After the first aid course, I was off to take the basic courses in fire fighting which following one incident at the training academy I almost quit. If it… Continue

Since my last blog here. Kind of fitting. Yesterday I went to the station to get my gear including my mask to do a ride along with another station.

I have been a volunteer fire fighter/EMT for fifteen years. Love the station I am at and I even get along with a majority of the career fire fighters. I say that since there are very few volunteers at my station, and at this moment I think I am the last "running" volunteer. My issue is that the volunteer corporation (name witheld so I won't embarrass them) has decided to sell my volunteer station. They say that I can come ride with them but most of them do not even know who I am.
