About Me:
I naturally fell into all this since my brothers literally started in the EMS svc in our area back in the 1970's. I became a nurse in 1996 and joined the TN1 Disaster Medical Assistance Team with it's formation in 2003. I have been deployed all over Florida, Alabama, St. Louis, and of course, Katrina. I serve proudly as a member of TN1 DMAT and my community as a member of the area search and rescue team STARS (Special Tactics and Rescue Services).

Facebook or Other Online Profile:
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
My whole family is in EMS/Firefighting, so it was natural
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Knowing that I can & will impact someone's life in the first ten minutes!
Top Issues Facing Responders:
9/11 raised the nation's consciousness of the hazards and dangers involved with fire/EMS, but since then I feel that it is waning. Yeah, it was great for a while, but now that all the grants have been handed out and some areas still are using antiquated equipment, Americans need to work to provide our fire/Ems personnel with better pay, more respect, and better benefits. These guys (and women) are professionals and need to be like professionals!

I understand. I'm looking forward to finishing up my ADLS certification, so I'll be in class the whole time! Maybe next year!

That was me with my strike team! We were so new at this that we didn't even know what a strike team did! Those orange shirts actually helped my husband track us on CNN (he first saw me at I-10 then at the airport). Are you coming to the conference in Nashville?

I remember those orange t-shirts from staging at the hotel in Memphis before driving down into Mississippi...definitely stand out more than our tan ones did.
