"Then again, some of us are volunteers"

ditto on the volunteers... Vollies do it for free...

Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil, that true love never dies. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in.

My grandfather, grandmother, mom, and stepdad are all firefighters and EMT's. I still plan on persuing bein a firefighter whenever i am back home visiting and when i get out of the military. I love being a firefighter and kinda wish i woulda joined the military as a firefighter.

I kind of always wanted to be a firefighter...

It is exciting and I love to play with fire.

I actually got to help fight a fire before. The neighbor's house(Read: two mobile homes put together.) lit on fire. The first tanker to arrive was volunteer and only had two people. I was helping with the hoses until whole fleets arrive a few minutes later. Trucks and tankers for 1/4 a mile. We always get a few townships showing up because of the forest. Forest fire BAD JUJU! Just gave me a sense of pride helping out.

So truckie, I'm guessing by your name you ride the truck and not the engine.

Started on a truck and then got drawn into the world of HEAVY RESCUE. Irons are great, but you gotta love the hurst tool.

not all do.. some talk little and just do the job..it is what we do. I hail from a long line of Irish FF's the earliest being those of Pumper Co's that were of the cistern guard in NYC. Talking about chatter?? Elders passed down they were loud and totally boisterous, some even to the point of obnoxious. I think it is an issue of pride. To belong to such a brotherhood is incredibly rewarding.
