Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Fascinated by wildland fire behavior and enjoyed service to community.
Retired U.S.F.S., Small Town Fire Chief, Community College Instructor and now expert witness in wildland fire. And I have joined the local volunteer rural FD as a firefighter. This dept. as most volunteer dept. are in need of personnel.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Top Issues Facing Responders:
The fact that the "FEDS" are seeking federal crimminal prosecution for decision errors on the fireground.
The lack of young folks willing to volunteer for their communities.
