Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Started at 14 yrs old because my neighbor was a Volunteer Firefighter and I used to listen to the scanner with him and watch him run out of the house going to a call and I thought to my self this is great.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love the feeling it gives me to know I helped someone in need.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Less manpower to deal with ever increasing call volume as well as trying to find the time to continue to train attend meetings raise money and a family all at the same time.
