I wanted to have a job that would be interesting and fun. I wanted a job that I could meet fun and interesting people on and off the job. I have found that job. Firefighting can be dangerous job, but with the proper training it can be a rewarding job.
Recently, fellow crew members and I assisted a 10-year-old girl out of a tree. My friends tease me about getting cats out of trees. I have never done that. I have, however, rescued a small child out of a tree. I also enjoy helping sick and injured people, inspecting buildings, and going to schools to give fire safety talks to the kids who in turn take the information and share it with their families. I feel that the Fire Dept. is making a difference in helping people in this city and I am part of that. I love my job.
