Wabash Township Fire Department (West Lafayette, IN)
I'm a dick of all trades, master of nothing. I'm a paid Firefighter/Paramedic, a volunteer firefighter since 1998, I'm a Deputy Town Marshal, and I work part-time as a 911 Dispatcher. If it has to do with Public Safety, I'm somehow involved in it. I guess that would make me a glutten for punishment.
Same as the majority of you. I want to make a difference!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Its funny. I'm not sure its a love as much as its a MUST.. Its like breathing..
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Though "Old School" works great at times, don't forget that there are new tools and methods that may improve your tactical positions. Having been in the paid service for a while now, I've noticed that it takes walking a very delicate line between "Old School" and "New School" to make things work.
