About Me:
I have been a member of the South Vineland Fire Company since 2001. My grandfather served for 41 years and my father served for 12 years. Two years after I joined, my younger brother joined. It is a family tradition. After completing my Firefighter I training, I immediately began taking additional training courses offered to further my education in the fire service. In early 2002 I attended EMT school and was the first class from Salem County EMT school to take the National Registry test. They have since stopped issuing that test and only issue the NJ state test. I live a half of mile away from the fire hall and try to spend as much time there as I can. We have a great bunch of people down there and of course the bad apples. Overall I don't think I would change it for the world! I am also a volunteer with our county emergency management (OEM) department - since 2007 but served on the Vineland OEM department as volunteer from 2000-2007.

Why I Love Fire/EMS
Being able to help the community while spending time with the "family" on emergency calls and partying with them in between.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
A recruitment and retention plan that works! Once we get them in we have to keep them. Then we need to train them properly - there is never enough training offered. Conflict between paid and volunteer firefighters in a mixed community also brings its own troubles to the table.

Check out Roll Call Forum and put some info about your Fire House in... Like to hear what your station is like, what you have as well as for number for firefighters as well as number of calls. Pass it around to your Firefighter Friends too....
