Relationship Status:
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I love to help people and am willing to go out of my way to do so. Ask any of my friends and they'll tell you the favors I have done for them.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Simple... That look in a patients eyes when they know we are there to help. Also the words: "Working Structure Fire"
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Safety and Department Politics!!! It seems that we all get along just fine when it matters. However as soon as the call is over there is too much arguing about the small things that dont even apply to what we do. People need to realize we have a job to do and thats all that really matters.
