Thanks for adding me to the forum. I first joined the volunteer fire department in August of 1971 - Jonesville, NY vol fire dept. At various times with JVFD I was Vice President on the social side and 10 years as a line officer - 5 yrs Lt, then 5 years Capt. In 1983 I moved to our neighboring fire district and joined the Round Lake Fire Department -August 1983 and I am still an active member. I was a Lt for approx 10 years and gave it up because I could no longer wear an air pack - getting older. I still drive the apparatus. operating the pump and filling air bottles when driving the rescue truck. I am also just completing 10 years on our board of directors.
