Episode 7-12 – Chris Kessinger – Citizens First Fire Training

As firefighters we spend a large part of our careers learning our craft. Some learn from the start and keep it going throughout their careers. Others think that from the academy they learned what was necessary and only continue their learning when they have to, i.e., mandatory department training. Across the country, there are often local, regional and national conferences with excellent speakers, instructors and often, “Hot Classes,” too! Yet, how many of us have attended a class to learn how…See More

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I've always loved the fire service. I grew up in the Boston area and visited many stations around the city and in the city. But there were no volunteer departments in the area. Thus, I devoted myself to the Red Cross. When I moved to NC it just so happened that there was a combination department just a half mile down the street, but I didn't know that. I walked in one day when the bay doors were open, just to look at the apparatus. An hour later, I walked out with an application and a polite request that I shave off my beard!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
It's who we are and it's what we do.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
The two major issues today both deal with firefighter health. First, we have the Firefighter Fight Cancer initiative. With all the toxins and carcinogens that we face daily, it is taking far too high a toll on our personnel. The second issue is firefighter fitness. And this initiative must be applied across the board, from the probie to the chief and to every career, volunteer or paid-on-call firefighter. We are losing far too many firefighters, YOUNG firefighters, to preventable health issues. We MUST break this cycle!
