Hi all, new guy here!
Joined a volunteer rural department in 2001 and never looked back.
Wanted more action so I joined a suburban FD in 2003.
Been doing both ever since.
I am now the assistant chief and training officer for the rural department as well as an EMT.
Weathered the bad storms last weekend in my new rig, running line down calls and marking off streets. I felt like a commercial for the Ram Box the other day when I grabbed my coat out of it as I ran to our rescue boat
