Hello, from Portugal
My name's Paulo, I live in Oporto (the 2nd biggest portuguese city). I'm fire Chief and the President of the Portuguese Volunteers Firefighters Association.
I hope we can exchange knowladge and become good friends. Who knows that someday we'll meet.
Keep in touch.
Hey, what's up in Rhode Island? Quiet here in Ohio. The weekend was busy (about 9 calls and I ran about 7 of them). We had a storm last night and that made up most of the calls. How was your weekend? Hope all is well. Take care and stay safe.
well you know it's never to late to return to the dark side! I live in Alplaus, NY (12008) which is up-state from the island about 3 hrs. We are located 20 miles North-West of Albany-right outside the city of Schenectady. I'm a paramedic with a private EMS agency--> Mohawk Ambulance Service (www.mohakwambulanceservice.com). I like it-but not as much as being a Fire-Fighter. There's nothing more crazy, fun, adrenaline rushing, then running into a fire and fighting the flame. Our station is unique in that we really don't have crew assignments-due to lack of members. But we have 2 Engine's, 1 Rescue/EMS vehicle-->we don't transport just first response w/EMT's-->Mohawk transports and provides ALS. But the best piece of apparatus we have is a Water/Ice Rescue Airboat equipted w/550hp Corvet Racing engine capable of performing at speeds of 75+ on water & 90+ on ice. Yea you can't see it right now, but I'm smiling-that thing makes me happy!
Alright well speaking of the airboat we have to do a water standby today on the Mohawk river. But I hope the info helps,
