I was a volunteer in Union Beach, NJ for 3 and a half year. I served as Jr FF and then became FF when I turned 18. I moved to Florida in January 2006. Went to EMT and Fire school and became a nationally registered FF/EMT. I now work for South Trail Fire District in Fort Myers, FL where I am on my probationary year learning the ropes of the department.
Please allow me to introduce you to our special site for responders. It was designed for firefighters and other responders by responders. It is a great place to meet and have fun, join discussions and forums, play games and just have fun on good days. When you have a "bad call" it is a safe place to vent, debrief or let it all out to others that are there for you. Many of those here are trained in CISM and are peer counselors. Others are skilled at even more knowledgeable levels ... all here for you or your friends when needed. With over 25 years of firefighting and chaplaincy I can appreciate the need for as sight that is safe and helpful
