Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I joined Fire and EMS to help members of my community and to give back to my community.
I also enjoy being involved in situations where I have to think on my feet, and nothing is the same.
Fire and EMS is a good fit.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
You get to help people in your community
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Getting funding to acquire gear and equipment for the fire department, fire fighters, and ambulance.
Recruiting of new recruits seems to be an ongoing issue, as there seems to be too many people that are too busy to devote the time to EMS services.
