To get my EMT-B (The dept would pay for it if I passed it) but after going through the fire academy I realized that you don't have to be 6'2" and 250 lbs to hit a hydrant or run the pump and it is a lot of fun.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I like helping people. Trying to make their hard times better.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Safety I think is a big one and continued training. My saying is "The more you know the safer you will be".
Greetings Barbara, since I was attending the Oregon EMS conference in Salem and missed your presentation this past weekend, are there any hand-out materials that I should pick up to review? I will check around for another agency that may be hosting a similar event to gain this skill-set during the Academy. If you know of some to contact or if you are bringing that training to a requesting agency, please let me know. Keep up the great work. I look forward to meeting you on the Fire-ground. Mark D.
