About Me:
Well I am 28 y/o looking to get into the Fed Fire service. Live in Milton, Fl. Born and raised in Allentown, PA. Love the North East and miss the fall season. Did 8 yrs in the Navy. Lived in Va, Ca, and now Fl while in. Did one 8 month cruise, saw a lil bit of the world. And fell in love with fire fighting with all the training I received in the Nav. :) I love my family, my animals, and my friends, and really animals in general. Thats about it in a nut shell :)

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Fell in love with fire fighting starting with ship board fire fighting while I was in the Navy and was able to get certified DOD FF and EMT-B before i got out.
I also grew up in a row home, and at the age of 10 the house next door had a huge fire in their basement. We had to live in a hotel for months! which was great, but it was my first interaction with the loss that a fire can cause. We lots a lot to smoke damage and more importantly are cat Garfield died from smoke inhalation, They tried hard to find him, but he went into the basement where the smoke came through the most. And that house sat boarded up for almost 10 years.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love the rush. The brotherhood. The satisfaction of knowing that you could help some one or save something for someone.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Running out of stupid people doing stupid things in the world.... oh wait, silly me, that'll never happen ;)
