My Training:
I have been in the fire service for a few years now and training has been an ongoing process since day one. I am currently an EMT-Basic, NREMT First Responder, IFSAC FF1, and Im currently at the HAZMAT first responder awareness level. I have also been through all the ICS classes except for the ICS-400 which is coming up pretty soon. I love training and learning new experiances as well as networking with all the people I meet both in the service and civilians.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I started out as a volunteer E.M. Responder to chase storms. The more I was involved the more I wanted to do. Im now a voluteer firefighter, NREMT First Responder, NREMT EMT-Basic, and E.M. Storm Chasser. So Im almost always running somewhere. I love what I do and the best part of it all is when a patient/parent of patient shakes your hand and thanks you from their heart. It makes every sacrifice worth it.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The thankfulness of patients and their families
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Adequate Funding for small departments, Safety, Adequate training for small department personell
