I joined to be a part of the community and do something fun. I have also wanted to be a firefighter for as long as I can remember. I finally am on a fire dept. I am a Firefighter 2 on the Lake Mills Volunteer Fire Dept.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The feeling I get from helping someone in need
Top Issues Facing Responders:
The need for good people to volunteer in the smaller communties and the amount of salary for those in the bigger cities. The pay does not seem to match the amount of training and time put into the job.
Be sure to check out the groups page to find some that may relate to you, easily post/upload pictures and videos, start discussing topics in the forums, write your own blog and of course, invite all of your friends and fellow responders to Firefighter Nation. You can use the 'invite' tab at the top to send a note to you e-mail contacts, or post a bulletin on your MySpace or Facebook profile.
Have a great weekend and thanks again for being part of our social network!
