Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I became a paramedic because I have always had an interest in the medical field, and getting to be the first on scene to treat patients is a really exciting and fast paced way to practice medicine and get to make decisions and think on your feet. I got into firefighting for the excitement, adrenaline, and was hoping to be a part of the brotherhood, tradition, dedication, passion, service. The more time that I spend in it, the more that I respect the people that have dedicated their lives to it, not just the major sacrifices such as losing lives, but also, the everyday sacrifices such as leaving your family to go to that call, being called away in the middle of important moments, having longevity and remembering why they do this, day in and day out for 25+ years. These are the reasons that firefighters are held in a higher esteem in my eyes. I believe that when the cockiness and bravado of youth wear off and those few that are left displaying wisdom, genuiness, and have escaped cynicism, then the true "heroes" are shown.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
No day is alike!

Good Luck!

I think I heard that your dept had a live burn. How did that go?
I also met one of your assistant chiefs last week. Mark Morris. Nice guy!

Have a good one!
