Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I guess the usual.....it's in my blood!! I am a 3rd generation F/F. I pretty much grew up @ the building and told myself that I would do what I saw my grandfather & father doing. Getting on that big red truck & helping people. I am also on the volunteer EMS for the same reasons. I like to help others.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Being able to help the people of my community.
