Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Because no matter how many certificates or positions held and years of experience I have, You still keep on learning something new, If its from a well seasoned firefighter or a younger one.
Its great to have confidence in yourself in which you do but there is a big difference in having confidence and being cocky. I known some that were too cocky and some were injured or even killed at a fire due to cockiness, Quote " Well I have all these certificates and a thicker folder then most older members, So I'm better then them". Not true.
You learn something new every day and as I said, It's great to have CONFIDENCE not COCKINESS.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I Love helping others and my community and surrounding communities. Just the satisfaction knowing I am doing something good for people in need of help and assistance.

It was the battery charger on the engine that caused it. In the 911 Tapes you can here the truck calling for help. The radio shorted and had a hot mike while the mechanical siren was spooling up. We are still without a station. They have finaaly decided on building us a new building at a different location. They keep changing their minds. We are currently in the township garage along with all of there equipment.
