Hey all my name's Brandon, Im 17 and a volunteer fireman from Ceredo, WV. I joined my department when I was 16 and have enjoyed every bit of it. I joined mainly due to my grandfather being a charter member of the dept. and ever since I was little Ive been around the station so when I turned 16 I had no doubt in my mind about joining. The CVFD responds to around 1000 calls a year and runs eleven apparatus out of three stations. In the future I plan on pursuing a career in nursing and lately have taken an interest in becoming a student live-in member of the Hyattesville VFD in Prince George's County, Maryland while attending college in the area. I've emailed their dept. and hope to hear back from them soon concerning their application process and state financial aid so if anyone reading this knows anymore about the program I would definitly be interested in hearing what you know. Well I guess this is it for now, see ya on the forums. - Brandon Hodges
