I was raised around Fire/EMS professionals my whole life. I wanted to be a firefighter since the fist time a fire truck taking off to go on a call. When I was 12 I started going on calls with Davy Volunteer Fire Department. A lot of people in the dept at that time didn't like me being there because they were worried that I was going to get hurt. I wasn't on the department so I wasn't covered on their insurance. I still came out on every call I could. I didn't do nothing more than roll hose and get the tools at the end but I felt like the greatest person in the world. I was very close to the chief and he loved to have me come out and help. I was told when I turned 16 they could put me on the department as a JR Firefighter and I loved hearing that.So for the next few years I went on more and more calls then once 16 I joined. I have been with Davy every since. I quit a few times because of the way I was being treated but always came back. Fire/EMS is a sickness, once it gets into your blood it's very hard to just walk away from it and not look back. I also love to teach the general public about fire safety and prevention so that they can do their part in helping us make our town safe. I'm more into medical now but still wouldn't give up firefighting for anything. I was to work Crit Care or PALS once I get up enough to go take the schooling that is needed. I hope you all like me life story, if anyone has any questions or would like to talk to me just send me a message I'm on everyday.
