my name is heather..i became a firefighter 10-3-05...i grew up 2 houses away from a fire dept...i used to spend alot of time there wit my friends, since no one in my family was involed wit firefighting...the men and women there used to show us around the station and the trucks..they used to sit there and tell us stories about calls they have had and how everything works... after spending years there i knew that is what i wanted to do... never really thought about joining that station tho.. my cousin got a new boyfriend and he was envolved for years and me and her talked and she was going to join...she was trying to talk me into joining but i was still in school and working 2 jobs i knew it was going to be hard to take classes, but i joined and everything worked out wit my jobs to take the class....this year in '09 i have became 1st.lt. i am now driving the brush truck to help out wit drivers and maybe one day the engine....that is a big MAYBE...i have took the time to become an emt also in '08 and it was the best thing for me..i plan to do this as long as i can....
