Relationship Status:
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I left the Army after 13 years of service and felt the desire to continue to serve in some fashion and the Fire/EMS service seemed like the perfect choice. My wife and I joined at the same time and have identical certifications except one area, she is a rope technician and I am a fire investigator, I did enough of the "tangle&dangle" rope stuff in the Army, my only regret is not getting in sooner. The most rewarding part of the Fire service for me is teaching.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Aside from being the greatest job possible, I love teaching others the trade.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Safety and keeping current with education/training.

GEEEZ, you mean New York is more backward than Ohio? at least we can go on-line after a day or two and check. I'm sure you did well. Have a safe and Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

No. No word as of yet on the exam result. This is typical for New York that make us wait for everything. I think that I did well enough to pass. I should find out in a couple of weeks. Stay Safe.
