About Me:
I was raised in a family that my step-father was a career firefighter in Las Vegas Nv I remember watching him going out on calls when we would visit him and thought this what I want to do when I grow up, now that I'm in the job I never new the politics and issues revovling this job but hey I'm learning everyday, in the dept I'm in today we are small but calls are tremendous and we are so busy that training at times takes a back seat to us I guess without a sturdy base of structured training in this career I recieved I would of been done along time ago. Being safe and stopping at times to smell the roses ( keeping the burn out on the down low ) and thanking god for talents I have recieved in this career are the factors to further myself and my family to achieving our goals, I go to work everyday and pray that if I have got to leave on a call that it is not willed or for my selfish endeavors but to provide a service to people in need. When I'm done with my tour and go home to my family I pray everyday that if that one day comes that I must go to my real home in the heavens my family and friends will know I did the best job I could and retire me to old man fire for eternity, until then God Bless and be safe ......
