I make my big move to the east coast this Friday. I am really excited, but at the same time nervous to venture out of what I call "Home". I am moving to Prince Georges County, MD. Specifically as a "live-in" Firefighter/EMT with the Laurel Vol. Rescue Squad Company 49. It was a decision I decided to make a few months ago. I wanted to gain to experience and saw my chance. They run a Rescue-Engine, Squad, Ambulance and a Dive unit mostly volunteer. They run about 6,000 calls out of one station. I want to learn about the part of the job that we see more often which is "Rescue". It should be an exciting and memorable time in my life!
I set out Friday afternoon on my 750 mile, 12 hour drive on the I-80 turnpike. I am stopping in the Lancaster area of PA to ride with my buddies fire company for a day (Eden Station 24, Lancaster County) before finally making it to PG County to my NEW HOME!
Fellow brothers I hope the best of this opportunity and look forward to learning from the experience. If anyone is in the area please lemme know... maybe we can meet up!
