I joined the local volunteer Fire Dept, in 1977, right out of high school. Held many ff association offices and dept positions including Chief for 6 years. I'm currently still there, working on my retirement future.

I'm a volunteer in a small mountain town in Gunnison County, Colorado. I'm an Engineer on our main attack fire truck and I'm a EMS First Responder. Most of our calls are medical calls and it seems like ATV accidents are our main issue to deal with around here. Unfortunately, over the years we have had a lot of practice with high altitude extractions. As I've gotten older, it is getting more difficult to carry a medical bag and several bottles of O2 way up in the mountains on foot. If a decision is made to bring in a medical helicopter in, we have to try to find a suitable landing zone and call in the GPS coordinates to the incoming aircraft. You haven't lived life on the edge until you've help load a patient into a running helicopter at 12,000 feet with one skid touching the ground and the other skid not touching anything. Whatever they pay chopper pilots in these situations, it isn't enough!

Also, when people come to visit our beautiful state, I wish they would slow their ATV's down and I wish they would wear a helmet.

I guess I will join in on this. Volunteer since 2007, active duty army firefighter from 2008-2012. 1 tour in Iraq as a firefighter on a fob smaller than most household toilets! That tour landed me dept of the army and department of defense firefighter of the year in 2010.

Currently a LT on my volunteer dept. The blood runs thick in my family within my hometown dept. my brother, dad, uncle(s), great uncle, and both grandpas are currently active, retired, or played major role in the development of this dept.
