Many certification's will list some later, Just finishing my Paramedic Internship
Let's see what can I say here. I am the grandmother of two beautiful little girls and the mother of one stubborn 22 year old. They are my life away from all the other things I do. I joined the dive team 10 + years ago and my life seemed like it was finally getting started. I became an EMT and joined other groups within Search and Rescue. A few years ago I got this wild idea at 42 of becoming a firefighter. I am so glad I did. I love it, it's so rewarding in so many ways. I have always loved helping others and EMS certainly allows you to do that.
So away from the dept and SAR. I love the outdoors, camping, climbing, repelling, skiing,snowshoeing, diving, sports, hiking, my horse, the beach when it was closer, etc as long as I am outside. I raised my granddaughter from 3ms til she was almost 4. She is my best friend and my greatest supporter. When I am not outside I am spending time with my kitty and/or scrapbooking, TV, reading, writing stories- oh yeah studying for NREMT medic exam. Can't wait til thats over!!!
I joined the fire dept after working 18 1/2 in the corporate world of banking. While n banking I spent the last 5 years as an EMT and when I decided to change careers firefighting just seem like a good place for me. I love helping people and it offers challenges and rewards.

I hope your not talking to my wife like that even though she is a LEO!!! She only wrote the blog, not commented on it. Its this Kameron person who has been saying that the police officer deserved the beating...once again, my wife only published the blog.
Yes, I was at the ice rescue training with dive team and have been to a leadership class at Medical Lake FD . I'll let Tracy know you said hi. Be careful in California and have fun. Not hot enough for you here?
Just letting you all know I am leaving this weekend to fight the battle of the WILDLAND FIRES in Calif. I should be gone 2-3 weeks if I can handle it....Stay safe everyone and if I get a chance I will post an update.
