Why I Joined Fire/EMS
In 1981 I suffered a sever accident, breaking my neck at the C-4, C-5, C-6 vertibre. After being turned down for military services, I attempted the fire service on a volunteer basis, and found that not only did I love it but I felt it was my calling. Due to my accident, I felt that the "LORD" had a calling for me and that that calling was to help his people, regardless of their color, religion, race, sexual orientation, good, bad, etc., etc., etc., And I've never regretted it. I joined the fire service as a volunteer in 1982, and became a paid firefighter in 1984. My career has been nothing but fulfilling.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Its my "calling".
