Why I Joined Fire/EMS
i joined cause of the one life changing day when i was a junior in high school and I went and job shadowed at my city's fire department. And from that day on I liked everything about the fire service the challanges the good days the bad days and everything else in between. And one other thing that i have to be honest about i love riding around in the fire engine cause every fireman is nothing but a little kid in adults body that likes to play with cool toys.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
No day is ever the same and the challanges you face the poeple you meet call to call and no call is ever routine. And being in the fire service is like having a second family thats always there for you no matter what
