Other Past or Current Departments and Organizations
I was an EMT, Paramedic and Supervisor for American Medical Response for which I worked for 14 years before being picked up with CAL FIRE
I have been married for 12 years to a wonderful woman. We have two kids together and two from her previous marrage, ages 23, 22, 11, and 6. Ihave lived in Yucaipa, Ca. since 1972. I moved here with my parients from Wisconsin when I was three. My roots are in Wisconsin so yes, I am a Packer fan.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
After seeing Emergency on TV, all I wanted to be is a firefighter. I wanted to be the person saving lives and fighting the fires. Yes, I fullfilled my childhood dream.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
It always changes from day to day

welcome aboard ,,,, the sites fun and many of the discussions are interesting ,,,, it's nice seeing how other departments and countries perform the same operations ,,,, but i love looking at all the different style apparatus used all over the world ,,,, word to the wise if you trade patches be careful, there are a few people looking to just get and not reciprocate ,,,, now, i will not mail anything till i have something in hand, but you do what you want ,,,, my goal is not to get a patch i do not collect them but rather warn you and watch your back as we all do for each other, it's what the brotherhood is all about ,,,, if you wanna add me as a friend, great, if not that too is OK, my message is intended to simply welcome you to the site ,,,
